Wonderful article which shows the dark side of HTML5 at this point in time (and Jeremy has restricted himself to `cite`; there’s much more weirdness than that in HTML5).

People have been citing persons (e.g. what she said) as well as works (e.g. what was said in her book) for ages outside of the web domain. Removing the citing of persons is ridiculous. The way HTML5 is trying to change the meaning of `cite` and other pre-web semantics is ignorant and dangerous.
