Ah, sorry. :)

But I did mention it is currently being planned for implementation by
Mozilla (mentioned in recent plans this year as something they'd be
working on after FF 3.1 (now 3.5))...

It does look that way... HTML5 was billed as a more incremental change,
but I'd say if you want to see a change, you might want to chime in on
the list there sooner rather than later... But with the browser's
aggressively supporting it, I'd say the benefits of having a (maximally
round-trippable) HTML serialization are going to be there regardless of
any imperfections, even if those imperfections lead to an imperfect
mapping between HTML and TEI.
