No, W3C markup along is not sufficient for handling the variety of things
you'll want to do on the web.  (The conflict between "what you should do"
and "what you really CAN do" is one of the reasons Edapta worked on
developing the ability to send different content to different user
contexts.  We don't assume that we will always be sending content that
corresponds to a W3C specification!)
