Maybe the specs should say that markup that's not explicitly 
non-conforming but is contradictory with other markup or otherwise 
illogical, such as [title example], should be considered non-conforming. 
That would lessen my concern over there possibly being too many ways to 
be non-conforming for it to be worth the effort to define and specify 
agent behavior for each case. My wording would hopefully cover more than 
one case.

Another widely scoped spec that would apply could be a default 
precedence. In the event of a precedence issue that's not explicitly 
resolved in the specs, such as [title example], the markup appearing 
later will have precedence.
