Right. OK, then "browsing context" may indeed be a necessary term for the
<object> definition. Which only confirms that it takes a lot more work to
make the spec understandable for authors (authors will not understand
"browsing context", let alone its current definition). I toyed with the text
some more without finding anything truly satisfactory. This is getting out of
hand. I can't afford to work on this.
