As I understand it html5 is deprecating processing instructions.

I'm also not keen on allowing error recovery without specifying how it
works - HTML taught us that this does not lead to interoperability. THe
approach taken by HTML 5 is probably a good one if you've decided to
break backwards compatibility and have things labeled XML that no
existing (conformant) XML processor can handle.
