Same problem occurs for any of the special elements, e.g.
<option><div><option>, and has since long before r5032. The problem is that
</option> is too "weak". Really to make this work as specced, we'd need
<option> to be a special category element.

I've changed <option> to not imply </option> unless the current node is
<option>, which seems less drastic and equally useful from an authoring
