One thing I like about this incremental approach though is that much of the benefit can be realized *only* with a new parser.  I know a parser is complicated, but with some of the complexity removed, it would actually be much simpler to create a new one.

Admitted - new features require some new work in the parser.  But 
actually my main concern re: simplicity is to simplify life for document 
creators, then document app developers, and only lastly parser 
developers.  I mostly meant that removing DOCTYPE would make the parser 
vastly simpler.  Some other things would complicate it, but those are 
(mostly) meant in the spirit of making it easier to work with the 
parser, not on it.
