I don't understand why this is a "problem". It seems quite important that
content be conformant whether it is in a document or orphaned. If someone
// this element will be used later
var ul = document.createElement('ul');
...then the |ul| variable is non-conformant, and I see no reason to allow
that at all, scripted or not scripted.
