HTML-ISSUE-158 (object-content-model): TITLE: HTML4's content-model for <object> should continue [HTML 5 spec]

http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/158

Raised by: Sam Ruby
On product: HTML 5 spec

In XHTML1 and HTML4, the <object> element creates a new context, where the parent element is ignored when the content of object is validated.

This permits such constructs such as 

   <p>Paragraph 1 
         <object><p>Seemingly nested paragraph</p></object>
          Still paragraph 1</p>

In fact, the solution text to ISSUE-107 resulted that the editor inserted exactly such an example into the specification.

The change proposal for ISSUE-128 also identifies a compatibility-need for using <object> to avoid that <p> is autoclosed by <figure> in some parsers.
