Re: Legacy IE browsers ignored <rb> in practice.

It appears that the editor did not even bother to read comments.
Ishii-san already wrote:

  IE9 standard mode parses rb 
  tag and build DOM tree correctly[1]. It accepts "rb
  { font-size:24pt; }" and it does style ruby base text as expected. So IE9,
  Safari, Chrome, and Firefox, they all accepts rb tag in an interoperable way,
  and therefore we don't have any reasons to remove it from that perspective.
  Forbidding rb element only makes existing documents incompatible with HTML5.
