HTML is being proposed as the source format *not* the intermediate. Are 
you still -1?

This proposal does not affect the move to XHTML 2 as an internal format 
(see )

Internally we will continue to use XDoc (and later XHTML2).

If any individual project requires a stricter input format it can 
continue to use whatever input format it needs as is the case now.
