I thought it was covered by this text from 3.3.1 Semantics:

	Through scripting and using other mechanisms, the values of attributes,  
text, and indeed the entire structure of the document may change  
dynamically while a user agent is processing it. The semantics of a  
document at an instant in time are those represented by the state of the  
document at that instant in time, and the semantics of a document can  
therefore change over time. User agents must update their presentation of  
the document as this occurs.
