<device> hasn't really been thoroughly thought through yet... we need
implementation experience to really know how it should work.

I'm interested in hearing how people think the fallback should work. In
particular, I'm interested in seeing realistic pages that would use <device>
yet have fallback. In practice I think most of the time pages will only be
using <device> after they have featured-tested for it, so I really don't think
we need declarative fallback and I don't think it's a problem that it doesn't
degrade to the same DOM in the parser. But I don't know, because I haven't seen
realistic demo pages yet.
