The W3C HTML5 validator, for example, shows that the described technique produces invalid HTML5 when the Turtle includes "</script>" in a literal string.

It feels like the working group getting out ahead of actual experience, especially when there are such trivial examples that result in invalid HTML (presumably making parsing the embedded turtle data difficult or impossible). If for some reason you think this section simply must be included in the final spec, I think you should explicitly call out the issue of possibly getting invalid markup depending on the contents of the turtle data.'

Would moving the Turtle in HTML section into a note work for you? As a
note it could mature at it's own rate and deal with some of the known
issues with embedding any kind of data in HTML.
