The w3c is discussing an HTML5 [1], which is not to be confused with
XHTML2 [2]. I'm not sure how serious or advanced this, but there's a
discussion on Slashdot [3] (stop rolling your eyes).

It's definitely more semantic in design, though I've only lightly
skimmed the doc. Note rel-tag [4], rel-bookmark [5] & the <article>
tag [6], and rel-nofollow [7]. It looks like (for example), a lot of
hAtom could be re-implemented using basic HTML5 tags and link-types.

Regards, etc.
