But do we want to restore that capability? Does libreoffice need an internal
HTML editor? (Note I am not talking about HTML import/export.)

I suggest we strip the whole Web module out. The HTML import/export should
stay. (As C++ code--XSLT is IMHO completely unsuitable for the heavy processing
that is needed to convert ODF to HTML.)

I don't disagree with that. What I disagree with is the need to have that HTML
5 WYSIWYG editor inside LibreOffice.
