Hello,

I already told in the very bug report for this issue that I worked on a 
change proposal, and I hereby announce it on this list as well. The CP 
can be read here: <http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/IncludeRB>. [There 
may still come some updates to it - to make it 'tighter' with regard to 
documentation etc, but it should be mostly done, now.]

The main idea is to just make <rb> a legal but optional element and to 
say that the HTML5 parser should make any non-ruby element close when 
the parser sees <rt> or <rp> - this is how Firefox and Webkit works.
