There is another DOM dump format which the html5lib tests use:

Note, it's a DOM Dump, not a Markup dump, but it serves a similar purpose.

I I think I like the html5lib format better for a few reasons:
1.  All lowercase (UPPERCASE TAGS ARE SO HTML4)
2.  The DOM tree indent is nice.
3.  <#text> is takes less space.
