You seem to be missing offline storage, Canvas, cross browser drag and 
drop (in a standardized way), microdata, cross browser geolocation (also 
standardized), form validation, along with video that isn't dependent on 
browser plugins (granted this is "nothing" but a new tag, but it is huge 
-- think iPad (and other non Flash enabled devices).

Offline web applications is particularly interesting to me, but there is 
plenty here to interest most developers.

Dive into HTML5 is really good as an introductory primer, and CC-BY-3.0 
to boot.
