It's fine to just call it undefined, since interoperability in those 
cases is not important for HTML -- they almost never happen.

But if people care about XML compound documents, that case needs to be 
addressed.

I'm fine with this change, as long as the wording is careful about when 
exactly this applies.

In the spec.  The implementation side is probably pretty easy in all 
implementations.
