That doesn't really make sense. The elements created by the parser are created
with their attributes already set. But I guess we can get the same effect in a
different way.

Overall this proposal seems to add a lot of complexity without a really good
argument. Are there really that many sites that depend on this? What are other
UAs intending to do here?
