Regarding [1], at least point 1, 3 and 6 are generic problems. It is also  
undefined in HTML 4.01/XHTML 1.x/XHTML 2.0 what happens for:

   <test> body { background:red } </test>

... for example. These problems are addressed in (X)HTML5 though:


I agree that these problems should be solved though. There should probably  
some generic algorithm for <style> (and <script>) that can be reused by  
languages like SVG, XHTML, the <?xml-stylesheet?> PI, MathML, etc.

What is also not clarified by the draft is what happens when you point to  
a document using a fragment identifier and that in fact the whole document  
is a CSS or XSLT style sheet... Should it not be applied or should the  
fragment identifier be ignored in that case? Et cetera...
