I have written a quick response at http://urlb.at/2d
Uche seems to miss the point - the reason that one is putting data in
to (X)HTML is that the other ways of doing it are sometimes not
possible, and that (X)HTML becomes a useful common interchange point
for data.

Uche is usually excellent on matters related to XML, RDF and so on,
but I think he's utterly misguided here.
