[Bug 14155] Drop the conformance requirement banning xml:base in HTML. If authors want to use xml:base with script in an "HTML document", there's no reason why should stop them. (It can be useful to implement new URL(url, baseurl) polyfill, for instance)

(Because we define conformance for DOMs, not strings, and it would be
misleading to people if we said xml:base was allowed but when they tried to use
it it generated invalid DOMs due to the lack of parser support for xml:* in
HTML.)
