Is it the intent of WHAT WG to specify text/html parsing in such a way 
that for each WHAT WG-conforming text/html document there exists (in 
the mathematical sense) exactly one equivalent canonicalized (in the 
XML c14n sense) XHTML document?

I think it would be desirable to specify text/html parsing so that the 
above-mentioned assumption holds true. (Also, it would be cool to have 
a test suite of text/html docs and their canonical XHTML equivalents.)
