Wait a sec, AFAIU it's not the extension that defines binary or not, but 
an attribute in site.xml.

I thought that we had agreed on this, Jeff, and I thought that this 
commit was in line with what we had decided.

  - Add .html matcher as new way of defining ihtml pages
  - Make namespaced content pass the pipeline (so we can add xhtml things
    to xdoc pages for special cases, as like ehtml)
  - deprecate ihtml and ehtml

I'd add now:
  - add a class attribute to all tags
  - add a user.css stylesheet so that users can easily change styles or
    attach new things to class attribute meanings

Do you have other ideas now?

I'm ok with rediscussing if you have other idea, just wanted to note 
that I did this commit because I thought it was in line with the 
decisions taken, not because I want to force things my way.
