The working group already agreed that this test is incorrect and should
be removed from the test suite.  (I raised the issue in February.  It's
on the CSS2.1 post-CR issues list, for some reason, as issue #117.)

It's worth noting, though, that a test that the paragraph *is* activated
would also be incorrect, since I think it is undefined which elements
can be activated.
