More to the point, if an XML element is not in the 
1999/xhtml namespace, it isn't an (X)HTML element (even if it has a  
local name that is also used in HTML) and what to do with the element  
is out of the scope of the HTML 5 spec. It would be inappropriate for  
HTML 5 to ban elements form other namespaces in the XML serialization.
