All of the new tags in HTML 2.0 and HTML 3.0 are illegal in the HTML 1.0
spec. Would you like to be in the situation where you cannot add any
new tags without breaking all the existing implementations? That would
certainly make for a difficult situation. The specification says to
ignore unrecognized tags specificly for the purpose of expanding the
spec in the future.
