I still can't make much sense out of this, the new text defines this
in part through the term "rendering tree" which does not define which
elements are part of it, but does define that elements for which the
conditional processing attributes evaluate to false are not part of it,
which seems to be a circular definition. The draft also notes that the
attributes apply to the animation elements and the discard element,
the element table however suggests they are not actually allowed on
those elements. It seems a better way to define this would be to link
to the attribute table, such that they apply to exactly those elements
for which the attributes are allowed.
