If we are confident that we don't want to introduce more elements than what the
old Ruby spec had and if we like implied tags, then it would make sense to:
 1) Make rt pop until ruby *or* rtc whichever is seen first (still only if
there's ruby in scope).
 2) Make rb pop until ruby *or* rbc whichever is seen first (still only if
there's ruby in scope).
 3) Make rbc and rtc behave like rp behaves now.

If we only did what Hixie said, we'd lose implicit closing of rb and rp in the
simple Ruby case.

How much do we want to keep the simple Ruby case old IE-like and how much do we
want to support tag omission?
