Well, I agree that XML is useful but I believe this sort of simple
.html-->.xml conversion has few advantages because .html is
simpler than .xml + .xsl + .dtd and many developers are familiar
So if we do so, I think we need to make clear the benefits.
I personally think simplification and/or improving reusability
can become an advantage, but since whether it makes editing easier
or not depends on who edits it and how frequently it will be edited,
it is not persuasive very much.
