unlikely. "div" and "span" elements didn't exist in HTML+.
It might be possible to write an XSLT to convert HTML 5 to HTML 4.01  
and/or XHTML 1.0 but loosing some elements.
That would be cool indeed if you could write it. Tag soup parser to  
normalize to XHTML 1.0 or XHTML 1.1 is indeed a great idea. I don't  
think XSLT is the best tool to do that, but I would be happy to hear  
your thoughts about it.
