No it won't, because people will continue to use <article>, <aside>,
and everything else exactly the way they use <div> now. Web designers
are basically graphics people, and they couldn't possibly give less of
a fuck how the user wants things laid out. And they never will.
They'll continue to do user-agent-based dispatch and present
completely different versions of shit to different clients, in the
interest of controlling as much of the display as possible, and when
faced with a client that doesn't want their bullshit, you'll get a
broken site. As usual.
