My perception is that HTML5 is also aimed at presentational,
particularly marketing, documents.  One could treat them as user
interface - especially given the stress on consistent presentation - but
they are relatively output only (although with custom controls for
navigation, panning, etc.).

There is a tendency for marketing documents to be applications, because
they often, effectively, contain their own browser, rather than using
native behaviours.

RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
