Basically, a UA must parse and create dom nodes for the svg and mathml
elements without causing errors, but need not render them or anything.
Thus why it is only under syntax, and not elements. That makes things
clear. Or it was already clear, but I simply brought some baggage with
me on reading the spec.

I suppose that will be the one found in the reference section at some
