I'm glad you've written down your thoughts Martin, because it lets us
give you solid feedback.
(a) You fail to mention that converting TEI to HTML5 in this fashion
does not also provide a a method for displaying the TEI, when pretty
much everyone in this community only converts to HTML for display.
(b) You fail to comment on whether the HTML-only tools and sites (the
first and second of your advantages) are going to be able to respect the
semantics of the TEI-in-HTML5.
(c) You fail to comment on the ability of TEI-in-HTML5 to represent
structures that can't be broken down into single hierarchical structure.
For example marking up the dual meanings of
(d) You fail to comment on the ability of TEI-in-HTML5 to meaningfully
