Considering the Degrade Gracefully design principle, it seems like a bad idea
to mint new void elements that get used in a general phrasing context. (In the
case of <source> and <track>, there's at least the <video> container.)

Can <device> be made non-void with the element content used for a "get yourself
a newer browser" message?
