Your comment on H53: Using the body of the object element:

Working Group Resolution (LC-2890):
Thank you for your comment. We do agree that H27 and H53 are duplicates,
however H53 appears to be the more complete version of the technique. 

We feel that Example 2 (nested objects elements) in H27 is useful and
belongs in H53 and we will move it there and then remove H27.
