Title: restore <rb> as an optional element

Text: In all the web sites that we looked at that currently use ruby markup
in the wild, over 90% of code uses the rb tag and most of the current browser
versions support the tag. The current HTML5 model for ruby simplifies the code
generally, but making the rb element obsolete will make most existing ruby code
non-conformant and make it more difficult to copy code that follows the Ruby
Annotation model, from XML or other formats, into HTML5. The editor has
repeatedly denied requests for this element to be restored, although both CJK
and I18N communities support its inclusion for backwards compatibility with
existing Web content, existing browser implementations, and for occasional
practicality in styling ruby base text. Although the HTML5 ruby model does not
require its use and although we do not believe it should be required, we would
like the <rb> element restored as an optional element within HTML5 ruby.

Please restore the <rb> tag as an optional element.
