Agreed. Any estimations what this cost in terms of development time, like so

“After all, HTML isn’t evolving, so web pages and browser rendering in 2007 will be essentially the same as today (which means the web, or at least HTML, is as good as dead […]).”
If HTML remains unchanged, it doesn’t mean that the web is dead : on the contrary, it means it has reached a big enough market to be relied upon and trusted to create new tools and new uses. Think blog / wiki / groupware / ERP ;-) / etc…
