Still, given that most web pages are not valid XML, if there was some
way to pipe pages through Tidy first, that might open up more options?

About a year ago I wrote a simple workflow did this; to download
articles from news sites like the New York Times. A simple Applescript
in my newsreader flags urls for download, a Ruby script then goes
through, downloads the files, and converts them to XHTML. An XSLT (2.0)
stylesheet then removes all the crap and inserts additional metadata in
the headers.
