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.'

I think CSS is a shining pearl.
Not only in structure. (bring a sort object orientated approach like inheritance) but also semantically it is very quick to grasp, write and read.
It also is preferred use in many best practice due to performance advantages to HTML styling tags.
Tables is one example where the CSS styled ones load faster than the HTML tags.
I hope that they can just forgo the majority of HTML styling tags in favour of CSS.
