Thanks (btw, the spec is so big and slows my browser so much that I don't
refer to it as often as I should because it is just too painful to do so.
;-)  But I note that that section is non-normative.

That said, I'd like to question if the scope is actually sufficient?  If one
of the realities of the HTML5 spec is dealing with tag soup, I would think
that a scope that does not attempt to address that issue is A Bad Thing(tm).
