Alternatively, would it be possible to have this behave mostly like
conventional HTML export (i.e., have the org-export-current-backend be
'html), and then simply have the code that does the emitting override
particular bits of the normal org-html behavior?

The problem with this approach is that a side-effect of setting the
org-export-current-backend to 'foo is to (require 'org-foo).  This means
it's difficult to make something like org-export-as-html5presentation be
parasitic on org-export-as-html...

I confess to not understanding how beamer and conventional latex export
interact; possibly that would provide valuable precedent for this.
