I noticed an issue.

HTML5 says:

Note: There is no implied relationship between document conformance 
requirements and implementation conformance requirements. User agents 
are not free to handle non-conformant documents as they please; the 
processing model described in this specification applies to 
implementations regardless of the conformity of the input documents.


RFC 2119 says:

    Imperatives of the type defined in this memo must be used with care
    and sparingly.  In particular, they MUST only be used where it is
    actually required for interoperation or to limit behavior which has
    potential for causing harm (e.g., limiting retransmisssions)



It seems to me that the requirements placed on documents are not 
required for interoperation.
