Hmm, clearly nobody would argue that *all* aspects of HTML practice are 
just fine, or we could shut down and go home.  As I understand it, the 
HTML WG is mandated with finding ways to improve existing Web practice. 
  The argument is over the technical details of how we do this.

My position is that to the extent that documents can be 
self-describing, you win.  I certainly don't deny that there's a cost 
in verbosity and that the trade-off is not obvious. -Tim
