If the idea is to mark up all the issues where someone disagrees, then 
there are a number of other sections we should mark, in addition to all 
those that have XXX markers in the source already, those that have bugs 
filed, and those for which outstanding e-mail feedback is pending:

 - The allowance of /> syntax on certain tags, e.g. <br/>, in the
   text/html syntax

 - The allowance of the style="" attribute on all elements

 - The inclusion of <div> as a valid element

 - The use of headers="" on <th>

 - The semantics of transforms affecting paths in canvas

 - The allowance of "xmlns" attributes on all elements

 - The messy situation regarding parsing <script> in SVG

 - The handling of document.write() in <script> in SVG

 - The use of <legend> for <details> and <figure>

 - The lack of the <datagrid> section

 - The lack of a geolocation <input> type

 - The inconsistency in algorithm descriptions for parsing integers

 - The rules around processing of "&" in attribute values

 - The conformance rules around processing of "=" in attribute values

The list could probably go on for a long time.
