If the HTML5 spec indeed was a specification of a vocabulary (as it used 
to be in 4.01), I would agree.

However, the way it currently is written, it indeed tries to be a 
generic description of user agent behavior.

The problem I raised *is* an interoperability problem that has affected 
people in the real world. So it escapes me why you feel HTML5 should be 
silent on it.
