[whatwg] [wf2] Comments in textarea

There is a parsing requirement in WF2[1] I believe is incorrect:

   For textarea elements containing tags in HTML
      The tags should be parsed as character data, but entities and
      comments should be recognised and handled correctly.

AFAICT browsers parse comments as character data too (ignoring the weird 
"pseudo-comment" parsing).
