We finally decided not to conform the semantics statement in the HTML5
specs, because the stylesheet in those specs also include rules like "rt {
display: ruby-text; }", which indicate our current behavior.

Since both of the statements (the semantics one and the stylesheet) seem
not to be normative for rendering behavior, and the semantics statement is
vague while the stylesheet is clear, we think it's fine to apply those
display value unconditionally, which allows <rb>, <rt> tags have effect
even outside <ruby>.

I think the default stylesheet in the CSS Ruby spec could be changed back
to the previous version.
