           Summary: The requirement on the xmp element conflicts with its
                    old definition (which requires a special parsing mode
                    where no markup except the element's end tag is
                    recognized) and usage. It is better to avoid requiring

Comment:
The requirement on the xmp element conflicts with its old definition (which
requires a special parsing mode where no markup except the element's end tag
is recognized) and usage. It is better to avoid requiring any support than to
require support that breaks legacy usage. The xmp element should be regarded
as undefined in HTML5.
