           Summary: Allowance for attributes starting with xmlns: should be
                    stated as a requirement on documents and conformance
                    checkers, not on the HTML5 spec

"While it is specified that HTML5 must preserve these attributes in the DOM, it
must also accept these attributes as conforming in non-XML HTML5."

This appears to place a requirement on the HTML5 spec itself. HTML5 does not
accept these as conforming, nor does it seem appropriate to state that it
"must". Instead it should be stated that under this specification, they are
conforming for documents and conformance checkers must treat them as such.
