That makes sense, but, then I'd like doctypes to be closed at the first >
even if it's in a FPI or SI, to match Opera, Safari and Firefox, and to
allow implementations to do doctype analysis in the parser stage instead
of in the tokenizer stage should they so wish, or skip doctype analysis
altogether if it is of no interest to them...
i.e., I'd like the > character in these states:
DOCTYPE public identifier (double-quoted) state
DOCTYPE public identifier (single-quoted) state
DOCTYPE system identifier (double-quoted) state
DOCTYPE system identifier (single-quoted) state
...to be a parse error, mark the doctype as incorrect, emit the token, and
switch to the data state.
