Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: The use case is situations like tables where each column or each row
contains a different form, and cases where a page-long form contains inside it
a separate unrelated form (e.g. a tax form with a little calculator on the side
to help work out some component of the bigger form).

I don't really see how it would be confusing. The user has no idea what the DOM
looks like, realistically speaking.
