[Bug 12165] New: The requirement on the plaintext element conflicts with its old definition and usage. It is better to avoid requiring any support than to require support that breaks legacy usage. The plaintext element should be regarded as undefined in HTML5.

           Summary: The requirement on the plaintext element conflicts
                    with its old definition and usage. It is better to
                    avoid requiring any support than to require support
                    that breaks legacy usage. The plaintext element should
                    be regarded as undefined in HTML5.

Comment:
The requirement on the plaintext element conflicts with its old definition and
usage. It is better to avoid requiring any support than to require support
that breaks legacy usage. The plaintext element should be regarded as
undefined in HTML5.
