The real problem here is that there are  some contentious HTML5 standards such as touch and gestures, Web Offline, Metadata, Web Database have to be agreed to. And the various vendors are starting to set out seriously different positions. Given that HTML5 and Adobe AIR are the last two cross platform development tools that can claim any degree of portability among desktop+mobile OS[yes AIR runs on iOS], HTML5 compliance now becomes a critical issue not just for developers and users but IT shops and CIOs.
