Status: Did Not Understand Request
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: I don't understand. Could you elaborate? Which is section 1.9.2?
(The section numbers change often and are autogenerated  they don't appear in
the source document I edit  so it's better to refer to the sections by name.)

Assuming you mean section 1.10.2 Syntax errors:
  
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/complete.html#syntax-errors
...then the section starts with "The syntax of HTML is constrained to avoid a
wide variety of problems.", which seems to unambiguously indicate that this
refers to the HTML syntax. It would in any case be inappropriate for the HTML
specification to talk about the reasoning behind the decisions that led to the
XML spec's error handling design, as far as I can tell.
