Hm, yes, same happens with </a>. I think the solution is to factor out the
processing for "any other end tag" in the in-body insertion mode, and then in
the in-foreign-content insertion mode, change "An end tag" to be "An end tag, 
if the current node is an element in the HTML namespace." and add a new entry
for "An end tag" that calls the factored out algorithm. Does that make sense?
