Conceptually, we want stuff to behave as if we were in the foreign lands if the
current node is not an HTML node and the current node is not one of the special
nodes that take HTML children. It's weird not to have this conceptual model map
one-to-one to spec text and to have the spec instead manage the "in foreign
content" insertion mode--often with bugs so that it's not actually one-to-one
to the conceptual model.

The bugs around <svg></svg><![CDATA[foo]]> and
<svg><foreignObject><div><![CDATA[foo]]></div></foreignObject></svg> (or indeed
U+0000 in place of CDATA!) show that the current model of having "in foreign"
as a mode (as opposed to being a special case before switching on mode) is not
nice and clear.
