It's reasonable to believe that bgsound needs the same treatment as basefont.

The alternatives are:
 1) Hoisting <base> back to <head>
OR
 2) Letting <base> take effect in <body>

It seems that #2 isn't needed for Web compat if <base> stayed in <head> when
written before </head>. Hoisting <base> to <head> seems pointlessly
unstreamable compared to letting <basefont> and <bgsound> stay in <head>.
