I am also partisent of the structure.
Currently, most client supporting HTML-IM are just focussed on the style,
providing a toolbar with colors/fonts ....
This can be nice for few fancy stuff, but a more interesting thing is to
emphase the text.
A better approach would be to have a toolbar with sementic buttons such
as 'emphasis', 'code', 'citation'.
It could also make use of a WIKI-like syntax

I'd say that <code> or <pre> is important too.
and the <ul/><ol/><li/> are quite usefull too.
Also make the style attribute not REQUIRED, because it's probably the most
complicated thing to implement.
And the title attribute is interesting too on <abbr/> and stuff, so OPTIONAL
would be better.
