I was experimenting with several LyX/LaTeX-> html converters some time ago. 
The main issue to solve at the beginning was to get the document through the 
converters (and reported a few bugs to eLyXer and others). In that process I 
installed/deinstalled converters (Debian testing), I run reconfigure in LyX, 
did manual setup updates in LyX,.... 

I certainly did not tweak the layout of the HTML in that process, that was a 
second priority. At least once the HTML file was not generated by the tool I 
expected (eLyXer in this case) and I reported an issue for eLyXer which was 
in fact a tex4ht issue.

To help in that kind of usecase the default should be a footer which clearly 
states that the document is generated from eLyXer. 

Having said that, for me it is not an issue anymore. I am over that initial 
phase and I have not problem to specify now whatever option makes sense for 
me. I think it is up to Alex, because he has the load of missreported bugs to
