Web 2.0 InfoWorld's Peter Wayner discusses the 11 hard truths Web developers must accept in making the most of HTML5 -- especially those who are looking to leverage HTML5 in hopes of unseating native apps. 'The truth is, despite its powerful capabilities, HTML5 isn't the solution for every problem. Its additional features are compelling and will help make Web apps formidable competitors for native apps, but security issues, limitations of local data storage, synchonization challenges, and politics should have us all scaling back our expectations for the spec.'

You are confusing HTML5 the buzzword with HTML5 the markup standard... HTML5 is the "bit by bit" approach. The alternative was XHTML2, which represented massive and fundamentally incompatible changes relative to HTML4.
