+1   A purely editorial improvement. Although "this document" is 
described as "this specification" in the previous sentence.

I think the Abstract section of the draft first has a sentence about 
where its /syntax/ is valid: "in the HTML5 and XHTML5 members of the 
HTML family". Then it talks about where the /interpretation/ (aka 
parsing rules) will apply. So in a way it has this already. Except for 
the detail that I took up below, and which Manu has already agreed to.
