Even if we remove the element from the collection of conforming 
elements, we still need to decide what to include in the rendering 
section with regards to quotation marks.

We could make it non-conforming and either require it to be surrounded 
with quotes (probably something simple like always using U+0022 
QUOTATION MARK, or whatever browsers do if they vary for different 
locales), or not rendering any quotes at all.
