Because of the disparate ways UAs currently handle parsing of unknown elements,
the tree is constructed in a variety of ways. Also the content model supported
by the text/html serialization does not support the full HTML5 content model.

Imagine an editing UA with the tree

p
 #textnode
 ul
   li
   li
 #textnode

A user wants this serialized to text/html without loss of data so that it can
be pasted into an email application and sent to a recipient whose email UA only
supports text/html processing. Right now the data is simply lost. That's just
one example, but the problem/issue has wider implications.
