[whatwg] Reading a start tag in "text" insertion mode

I am building a parser incrementally by sets of elements (and not all at the same time ) so while debugging I noticed that the text insertion mode does not have a "anything else" branch. Lets assume my input is the following: <title><head>
The title start tag will lead us to the text insertion mode. And then what should happen ?  The specifications don't deal with this case as there is nothing that says what should happen in this case... I think I am missing something here ?
