I'm not sure. The schedule presumably does include waiting for  
interoperable implementations which means we either make this an  
informative note or refer to HTML 5 and wait for that.

As it stands now it is tightly integrated with HTML tokenizing at least  
(also in implementations) which would make that tricky given that that in  
turn depends on script execution.

Overall, I agree that the next draft should probably be more clear on this  
issue. It's not entirely clear to me yet what to do.
