"To ease migration from HTML to XHTML, UAs must assign the
http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml namespace to elements in that are parsed in
documents labelled as text/html, at least for the purposes of the DOM
This does not seem to be what currently happens. Neither Mozilla nor
Opera (checked in 7.54) do that, document.body.namespaceURI returns null
for HTML documents. (MSIE does not seem to support that attribute)
If that's not what that paragraph meant, then I think it needs some
clarification what it did mean with "for the purposes of the DOM".
