I think it's clear that "the server" here is the server serving the page.

Other pages already can't add any markup to the page. Servers can't just
arbitrarily affect each other.

Marking WONTFIX since I think the requested fix is unnecessary in context, and
would in fact lead to readers wondering if another server could have been meant
if the clause wasn't present (as it isn't in many other cases in the spec).
