But it's their DOM objects that must implement the HTMLModElement

Perhaps the way to fix it is to say:
# Conformance requirements phrased as requirements on elements or markup
# attributes are conformance requirements on documents.
# Conformance requirements phrased as requirements on DOM attributes,
# methods, or objects are conformance requirements on user agents.
It seems like that would catch more of the common cases.
