The implementers need to support nesting some ruby boxes and ruby text 
boxes because the ruby related style rules can be applied to other 
elements. Then, the ruby implementation can be simple if HTML5 allows to 
nest the ruby elements rather than the complex ruby of XHTML1.1. So, we 
can support the complex ruby easily by this way if we need to do that.
# I don't think the complex ruby becomes popular because I've never seen 
the complex ruby on most Japanese books.
