I agree with your interpretation and actually have a patch that fixes 
Mozilla's behavior on comments that start with '</' that I'd be glad to 
attach to a bug that you file in the core->HTML: Parser component at 

Note that at the moment, Gecko still has true SGML style comments 
implemented, though we're likely to follow what HTML5 says once the spec 
is finished.
