My rationale for inclusion/keeping srcdoc in the spec:

  * It's easier to use. Compared to sandbox without src, srcdoc requires  
less changes to server-side applications that generate markup.  
Applications can continue to generate entire page as a single response  
rather than having to split page into many separate documents.

  * It's safer. It allows secure use of sandbox without having to set  
appropriate MIME types for responses. Based on experience with XHTML, MIME  
types are not widely understood by authors and often ignored or used  
inappropriately.

  * It's faster. On broadband connections number of requests is very  
important factor of site's performance, often more important than size of  
the document itself. Unlike sandbox with src, srcdoc does not increase  
required number of requests.
