Last time I discussed this with Jonas Sicking he agreed that Gecko could  
change some things here and he also agreed with the model put forward. If  
the model is wrong we should fix it of course.

It does indeed not apply universally and as far as I know HTML does cater  
for those exceptions in various ways. It would be interesting to know  
where it does not.

I'm not sure how extensions are relevant here. If you allow them to do  
complex things then of course they will be complex to implement, but there  
is not much we can do about that.
