Having looked a bit more carefully at the SGML declaration,
I hafta say I definitely have plans to make changes. I can
make brackets valid in IDs for you, isn't that just *spiffy*? :D
(HTML4 itself adds : and _ to the list, in case you were wondering.)

As for SHORTTAG, it's not going anywhere. It's needed for
dropping quotes and default values and attribute minimization.
