Default HTML is Dead. Long live HTML. Five that is...

I StumbledUpon this UserFriendly comic strip, and I really had no idea what the joke was, although I sort of understood the jab against FrontPage, I didn't really think it was all that funny. To tell the truth, I rarely find UserFriendly funny, but it did get me wondering about HTML 5. After all, I thought 4.01 was going to be the end, and I was all about converting all my pages to XHTML, but now here's a strip mentioning HTML 5. Lo and behold, there it is at:

http://www.w3.org/html/wg/html5/

and also mirrored at some outfit called WHAT:

http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/

I just don't understand the reasoning behind this, and what the implications are for someone like me. Should I expect to be using HTML 5 in a couple of years rather than XHTML 2?
