It seems like the behavior for that case is well-specified by the XML (for the
parsing) and CSS (for the layout) specifications.  If the HTML specification
requires a UA stylesheet that modifies that behavior, then we could probably
get away with making that form display:none; absent that, doing so would be a
bug, pure and simple.

Are we ok with documents either showing the form elements or not depending on
whether they're served as HTML or XHTML?  I realize there will be other layout
differences between the two in this case, but this is a slightly different
order of breakage.
