Comment:
Processing EOF InForeignContent mode can cause an infinite loop if we don't
switch the insertion model to the secondary insertion mode.  Suppose the input
is <svg><title>.  Now, we won't pop anything off the stack of open elements. 
The insertion mode will still be in foreign content, but we'll still have an
element in scope outside the HTML namespace (namely the svg:title element). 
Reprocessing the token, then, leads to an infinite loop.
