I disagree these are irrelevant.

@srcdoc, for the first time, introduces HTML markup into attribute 
values. This is bad design.

It's perfectly ok to argue that sandboxed iframes will not be as useful 
as advertised, and thus the most outrageous ugliness in the markup 
should go, while the remainder of the mechanism could stay.
