In general, the approach we've taken is to put all rendering code in WebCore, and the DOM aspect of each markup language in its own directory. I can see how there could be benefits to keeping it all together, but I think it's more important to stay consistent with the rest of the project.

It might make sense to use subdirectories of rendering/, as svg has started to (although this seems incomplete - SVG folks, is the plan to move the remaining SVG-related rendering files from rendering/ to rendering/svg?).
