Hi! The CP says, quote:

]]  Applicable specifications MAY define new document content (e.g. a 
foobar element), MAY prohibit certain otherwise conforming content  [[

Since the HTML5 draft prohibits many previously conforming features - 
especially attributes, many of which user agents nevertheless support, 
it might be a point to also add that applicable specifications as well 
"MAY permit certain otherwise non-conforming content".
