Hi Anatoly,

Perhaps it would be helpful if you expanded on specific issues with the HTML Imports syntax, either on this list or using an Issue <https://github.com/w3c/webcomponents/labels/html-imports>.

7 years ago the request to add <body> was blocked [1]

The reason was that parser has to block while the document
is loading. Is that still actual for 2015?

From the user experience standpoint I find the barrier for
structuring HTML5 pages too high for newcomers. The simple
include could greatly help people to work with HTML5 more
easily and learn how to make their markup more readable.
Custom elements are awesome when you're a coder, but no
so awesome when you're just a journalist of designer.

Even as experienced non-JS coder I find the current syntax
for includes mystic and daunting [2]. The paradox is that for
HTML5 includes it is not possible to know about HTML alone
- need a good knowledge of CSS selectors, DOM and
JavaScript to read the website.
