           Summary: In the section about the time element it is stated
                    that it does not need the datetime attribute set if
                    its textContent is a valid date or time string. So the
                    selector here in the rendering section,
                    time[datetime], might mislead implementors to not
                    apply a

Section: http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/#the-time-element-0

Comment:
In the section about the time element it is stated that it does not need the
datetime attribute set if its textContent is a valid date or time string. So
the selector here in the rendering section, time[datetime], might mislead
implementors to not apply a time binding if the attribute is missing but the
textContent is a valid date or time string.
