That's actually still allowed. There's "special" handling if the current  
node is <mi>, <mo>, <mn>, <ms>, or <mtext> that allows nested HTML and SVG  
in those elements. Ian was talking about the case where the current node  
is not any of those (and that case is checked later so it should be fine).
