Though I disagree with the design, but in order to reflect what 
the draft actually says - and apparently has said all along, and 
thus to ensure (better) review of this decision, I would like to 
ask Anne to add to the differences document that HTML 4 Processing 
Statements count as invalid markup in HTML 5. And thus that <?php 
... ?> is invalid HTML according to the HTML 5 draft.
