Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: 

This defeats the entire point of having a well-defined semantic language:
there's no fallback behaviour for legacy UAs or UAs that don't support the
component model / CSS / scripting / whatever it is that gives the elements
their behaviour or styles. For example, search engines wouldn't be able to
determine how to process the files that used these new features.
