Thanks very much, Gérard.  I've created a bug for this issue: 
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=15381.  If you would be 
willing to comment on that bug about browser support for your test, that 
would be great.  It's highly likely that the spec will be changed in 
errata to correspond to what it originally said.

Cheers,
