http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html#radio-button-group

If we follow the rules of 'radio button group', an orphan radio button and
non-orphan radio button are in a same group.  It makes some problems.  For
example,

<body>
<input type=radio name=group1 id=r1 checked>
<script>
var clone = document.getElementById('r1').cloneNode();
</script>
</body>

The r1 button is unchecked because the 'clone' is added to the same group.

Proposal:
Update the following sentence:

 * Either a and b have the same form owner, or they both have no form owner.

==>

 * Either a and b have the same form owner, or they both are in a Document
subtree and have no form owner.
