This is not a frivolous or invalid issue. HTML5 *is* a W3C spec, and it
normatively mandates support for DOMPARSING in Section 2.2.1:

"In addition, user agents must implement the features defined in the DOM Range,
DOM Parsing and Serialization, HTML Editing APIs, and UndoManager and DOM
Transaction specifications that apply to their conformance class. [DOMRANGE]

Therefore, the W3C Patent Policy *does* apply to DOMPARSING by inclusion. If
HTML5 did not normatively mandate support for DOMPARSING, then I agree this
would not be an issue. However, it does, and it is.

If you don't care to treat this as an issue, then please consider this a
request to elevate to HTML working group issue.
