HTML-Tagset (3.20)

Reading the bug reports for this module, it looks like it's been nearly abandoned:

rt.cpan.org/Public/Dist/Display.html?...

The maintainer doesn't seem interested in adding support for the new HTML 5 tags, and there are no updates since 2008, despite some patches for bugs. Another unfortunate fact is that a lot of the module is not correct. Here I'll give a link to my own module's documentation, which discusses several issues in detail:

metacpan.org/pod/distribution/HTML-Va...

Considering there are 33 other modules which depend on HTML::Tagset,

metacpan.org/requires/distribution/HT...

it really is a shame that it's not being updated, despite the many offers of help from people which one can read at the above rt.cpan.org link.

Not only that, but HTML::Parser, which is a very core CPAN module, also depends on this, and that has 540 dependent modules.

metacpan.org/requires/distribution/HT...

It's really a shame about that.
