It is. But they are not explicitly forbidden, only very strongly deprecated.

The very most minimal subset possible would be just elements and text
nodes, I guess. After that would come elements, text nodes and
attributes. After that one could add PIs or comments.

Looking at the issues, the hard problems of performance an security
seemed to be addressed by removing the doctype declaration. I think
the subset will be more generally useful if it allows comments and
PIs.
