Clarity. For an author who tries to follow specs as best I can, to be faced
with two specs where one says "Do A, don't do B" and another spec that says "Do
B, don't do A", what am I to do?

The HTML5 spec does not live on it's own, but in a environment with all the
other specs, and there's no obvious reason why the HTML5 spec should "win" such
a conflict.

It would at least be easier if the HTML5 spec said "Do A or B, in this context
it doesn't matter".
