Some very basic things I've run into: some browsers can't style the 
legend tag, some browsers can't style input (esp. file) elements, some 
browsers drop the value of button elements, some browsers do weird 
things if you offset the body (to the point where jQuery no longer even 
tries to support that).

Given that today you can use div elements with classes to get the same 
results as HTML5 would give I don't see any point in trying to hasten a 
change to HTML5.
