I really don't understand what you're asking for here.

Could you describe what DOMs you expect to see in conforming HTML5 user agents,
assuming we adopt your proposal, for the following fragments? (For example, by
translating them into the equivalent well-formed XML.)

   <video><source></video>A
   <video><source>A</video>B
   <video><source>A</source>B</video>C
   <video><source></source>A</video>C
   <video><source><source>A</video>B

Similarly, could you state which of the above you think should be conforming,
and which should be non-conforming, and how to detect the difference?
