I don't think this makes much sense. It renders as a block-level widget.

<details> is completely inappropriate for inline rationale. It's not a footnote
element. It's specifically and exclusively intended to be a disclosure triangle
widget.

If we want a footnote element then we should add a footnote element.

<details> is intended to be essentially be parallel to <fieldset>, the
difference being that the group can be collapsed if it's a <details> element.

(As a side-note, I believe this would be the first time we'd be allowing <p>s
to be nested. I think keeping the language consistent in that you can never
nest <p>s is a good thing.)
