How is this a spec problem? User agents are allowed to show all this
information, if they wanted to show it they could. There's nothing we can do
about it -- we don't even define that, say, the contents of a <p> element
should be displayed at all! We just have to say what things mean, not what they
should look like. It makes no sense to say what they should look like; that
would stifle UI innovation in the browser, and would make no sense when you
consider how e.g. a search engine, an HTML semantic analyser, and a Web browser
have radically different needs.
