"But, is HTML absolutely terrible or just not the best?"

Terrible, in my opinion, for a whole host of reasons.

"In today's world, a unified DOM parser is all it takes for HTML along with JavaScript or otherwise."

Yes, but so? That doesn't address the problems with using HTML for this sort of thing (especially with HTML5), and if Javascript (or any other live code) is a required component, that just makes it worse.

"since UINT is now a feasible option to allow Javascript to be a loader/patcher, that doesn't mean your browser will allow that"

I would consider browsers not supporting that to be a good thing, but largely irrelevant to me, as I generally don't allow websites to run Javascript in my browser. It's just too risky.
