As I said in my last email, a suitable proper subset
of HTML is probably at least one requirement for such
experiences, since 'tabula rasa' HTML doesn't make
any guarantees about user experiences.

That's not an observation about new tags, however, which
is the key issue here. It's rather an observation about
which new or old tags are worthy candidates for specific
styles of apps. That probably neatly classifies this thread
as OT.
