why just not extending HTML ?

After playing whith GLADE for Gtk+ apps i still think xhtml is the easyest way to set up a quick form based graphial interface. So i am looking for a HTML to Glade converter or somthing like that. years ago I heard the XFroms would appear in several years since it is an W3C proposal. But anyway... we are still waiting. So, why just not simply extend xhtml for form based apps ? you know, many new widgets would be useful, like:


<date>01/01/1970</date>
<knob start="0" end="100"></>
<slider pos="vertical" start="0", end="100"></>
<menu class="main">
<item action="edit.php" target="new" >Edit</entry>
<item action="prefs.php"
target="new">Preferences</entry>
</menu>
