Well, part of the problem is that there's not really such a thing as  
"document language". The rules for what should happen when e.g. SVG nodes  
are part of the tree are not exactly clear.

Also, to avoid magic lists and "violating" Selectors we could make HTML5  
say that attribute values are case-sensitive as far as Selectors are  
concerned.
