In "before head" the spec says:

> Note: This will result in an empty head element being generated,  
> with the current token being reprocessed in the "after head"  
> insertion mode.

This is untrue for start tag tokens that are one of: base, command,
link, meta, title, noscript, noframes, style, script. These will
create a head element and result in the current token being
reprocessed in the "in head" insertion mode.
