It's cool that there's gonna be more html5 games but there are problems with it too.
First, what about existing sites? I run http://www.batmangamesonly.com
Where am I going to find games with batman in html5? no where. not at least at the moment.
Another thing that's questionable is that html5 games are not easy to distribute. The idea of having one big server and embeding the code on thousands of other sites sound expensive. And what about earning? I think html5 is introducing more questions and format is one of the biggest issues here..

 Here is a game I developed using only JavaScript and the HTML5 canvas element. The game is loosely based off of the original asteroids game and meets or exceeds the quality of many of the games on your list.

Asteroids Inc. Game

Wave 57 on my first stab at Z-Type - final score of 13,415!  That's one of the best typing games I've played.  It's like they took the words from programming textbooks and presidential speeches.

I accidently hit a bookmark while playing Space War, but it saved my score: 384,050! I'll definitely be playing most of these :)

Do they have "native" Pong?
Call me when Crysis is out in HTML5.
Thanks.

FINALL! Someone who writes about tech/games who knows that Angry Birds isn't the original.

In case you forget, HTML5 games work best on IE9 on Windows. That is the most native HTML5 (gaming) experience according to Redmond
