In particular, this is my request. It should be documented but not in HTML5 itself - the HTML5 spec supports loading unknown elements that are defined elsewhere [1]. Since it wasn't included in previous versions of HTML and the desire is not to include it in future versions, not adding it at this stage seems preferable.
