Ok, that makes sense. So basically no magic is performed in the allowed
syntax, it is just:

  normal | [ <content-item>+ ',' ]* <content-item>+

...where <content-item> is:

   <uri> | icon | none | flow() | <string> | contents | ...

The UA always assumes 'contents' is given as a final fallback. ('normal'
is the magic initial value that Does The Right Thing in most contexts.)

If the <content-item> list that is used consists of just a <uri> then the
element becomes a replaced element.
