HTML5 actually does define how you handle unknown elements; they're more or
less treated exactly like <span>. It's not really explicit anywhere, more an
implicit result of defining a lot of things via defaults (e.g. parsing
behaviour for <bdo> isn't mentioned explicitly, so it uses the defaults, which
is the same as for unknown elements).
