It's not really a moving target ? what it is is largely constrained by  
the requirement to parse pre-existing documents (which rely on almost  
every possible bit of behaviour).

If you do start work on a PHP implementation, please do seriously  
consider adding it to the html5lib project (which currently contains  
Python and Ruby implementations) as MIT licensed ? there are also a  
fair number of test cases there.
