Let me make sure I understand what you're saying here. Is it that  
WebKit does not want to properly render properly authored HTML4  
content, but only HTML5 content? If this is the case I think that  
should be clearly stated on the goals of the project page. If that's  
not the case, then I see no problem with WebKit supporting an HTML4  
construct even if it is eventually removed in ten years by HTML5.

Take care,
