The spec is trying to match IE's old parser, not WebKit's. WebKit's old parser
had nowhere near the same level of deployment. In particular, the scoping
behaviour is trying to emulate IE's scoping behaviour, not WebKit's. <button>
was a special case that we changed due to a compat issue where IE's old
behaviour was less compatible than what the spec now says.

The joystiq case is special because they're using conditional comments to send
IE different markup.

What was the other site that the problem was seen on?
