But “that’s how HTML works” also did entail not being able to implement your own tags. So this argument is moot because as soon as you extend the definition it’s up to you where to stop. WC is one single point in this design space and some developers disagree about it being well chosen. That’s ok I guess but point here is: no this is not a case of misunderstanding; it is a case of different viewpoints about the usefulness of an arbitrary extension of HTML.
