Should it be the time where coding standards meet html5 or at least get mentioned?

In html coding standards there's a few things that should be improved.

Hi @rklis,

Thanks for this ticket! Sorry that it took so long to receive a response.

I am inclined to leave these as is for the time being. I believe that these rules are in place to ensure maximum compatibility with HTML, XHTML and XML.

While using HTML5 is more common, there could still be sites using XHTML. Also, this should probably be proposed and discussed on the Make WordPress Core blog before formally making any changes.

I don't feel super strong about this, though. I am going to mark this for a 2nd opinion.

No one has weighed in over the past 6 months. I am going to close this out as a maybelater.
