Status: Partially Accepted
Change Description: see diff given below
Rationale: Fixed the first thing.

I've left the second thing as is. I agree it doesn't strictly match all UAs,
and I wouldn't recommend to those UAs that they rush to match the spec.
However, given that <frameset> rendering really doesn't match CSS rendering
anyway, I think it's fine that the check for this would happen at the top level
(meaning UAs don't have to load up the CSS machinery only to render a single
thing that doesn't follow CSS anyway), rather than having it just be special
rendering for <frameset> that then is itself laid out using CSS. In theory it
makes the model a little simpler.
