After reading some emails again, I’m +1 on porting the fixes to 2.7.

1) We agree that HTML5 is the reference specification.

2) I don’t think there is sane code that would be broken if some previously unparsable page became parsable (an exception can be HTML parsers, but the obvious example BeautifulSoup does not use HTMLParser for example); HTMLParser is not a validating parser and never made any guarantee about the validity of handled pages.

3) Most people should be happy to have more pages handled by HTMLParser.

4) 2.7 is unique as long-term support, last 2.7 release.
