Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: 

I actually did consider this while designing this part of the spec.

It would only matter for XHTML. XHTML content is not allowed to have
descendants of <iframe>, and <noframes> and <noembed> are non-conforming
anywhere, especially in XHTML where they have no effect on anything else
either. 

I don't see much value therefore in adding code to handle this particular case,
since it would only affect non-conforming XHTML content using obsolete features
that never worked reliably in XML anyway, and it would still not solve the
multitude of other similar issues with those elements (such as form controls
still submitting, etc).
