I would be very interested in testing out the forums with redone HTML5/CSS3 markup for use with the WHATWG community.
I am very interested in this effort. Using the newer semantic elements of html5 is a great idea.
<section>, <aside>, <article>, <nav>, <footer> etc. are definitely the way forward and easy to implement.
I also think that web fonts (such as the Google fonts API) and CSS3 transitions are a nice touch, although there is limited support they degrade gracefully.
I think 3.2 is definitely a good time to start the work with new semantics, this will mean a better transition to phpbb4 (as newer elements will already be used).
If anyone has information on potential testing of this modernization effort, please hit me up and I will be happy to test drive it.
Also for reference: http://www.whatwg.org has links to a lot of information on the html spec. And there is a nice spec document designed for the web developers perspective:

I believe this could be implemented quite easily in phpBB with the current template system. I'd like to have a go at creating a style for phpBB, but time is not permitting at the moment, perhaps in a few months.
The only thing is, as I believe it may or may not have been said by someone else, there might be some opposition to using a draft specification for a default style, although it seems a lot of those tags you mentioned are pretty much set in stone anyway. However, naderman seems to have given the okay to the use of HTML5 here.
