[whatwg] The <object> element and fallback content

OK, another <object> fallback question: Consider an object that has no 
attributes that would allow selecting a plugin/content handler. For 
simplicity, consider an object without any attributes, say:
   <object>Foo</object>

What should be displayed? Should the user agent just fall back to the 
contents of the object? (Presumably "empty string" as fallback content 
does not affect the answer to this question either :-) )
