Pleased to meet you!

That is just one topic amongst potentially several that I would like to 
discuss (but there is no rush). In general, I am interested in features 
that EPUB adds that aren't available on the vanilla "browser" web. I 
believe that those should provide use cases for additions to HTML. (Note 
that I'm not saying that HTML should just import them as is  but I do 
think that we should strive for convergence and I want to help with that.)

Concerning @role, I started discussing the potential usage of it from 
EPUB types. The first questions I received were about how much this was 
implemented in actual readers, i.e. how actual implementations change 
their behaviour (compared to an unmodified HTML engine) based on these 
types. If you have any way in which I could easily find such 
information, it would be most helpful.
