Posted to Bootstrap without all the debt over 1 year ago

The 'semantic web' was a data-scientist pipe-dream that died with XHTML 2. The only semantics expressed by your markup is in the interface they present to your users. Any effort expended to add 'semantic' value beyond that is wasted effort, that would be better spent improving your product in a way that actually benefits your users.

As for decoupling from Bootstrap, if you ever need to swap out such a foundational part of your application, you have made a serious mistake somewhere. You should choose your core dependencies carefully, then exploit them to the fullest and build on top of them, not waste effort trying to abstract yourself from your choices. Yes, you will accumulate debt, but that is just the price you pay for the advantages that such libraries give you.
