When will opencart start to use html5?

Are there any plans to start using some of the HTML5 changes in Opencart core?

The 2 main things I would like to see are:
1. Remove all the onClick from the DOM and use jQuery click methods. With HTML5 you can use the data- attributes to store the product ID etc.

2. Form input type. E.g type=email, type=tel make it easier for registering on a smart phone.

Just putting it out there now, so that maybe in a few years time when HTML5 is better supported Opencart will be ready.

People are still complaining about IE6 support. When people stop whining about that, then we can start focusing on HTML5 transitioning.

I suppose it may be possible to add html5 support and IE6 will probably ignore most of it. Then again, this is just a theme question. I'm sure there are theme makers that can make you an html5 theme.
