What's your rationale for adding DWIM for those particular elements as
opposed to adding DWIM for all elements?

I don't want to add DWIM to support <html>, <frameset>, etc., but I'd
like to have good confidence that the selection of elements that we
add DWIM support for is the right set (neither too broad to drive up
implementation cost without use cases nor too narrow to end up needing
whack-a-mole tweaking later).
