I for myself have to say I'd remove it completely; I do not think it is
reasonable to have the document altered by the parser in first place;
I've found some more issues with it in the mailing list, too.

Since DV didn't ask himself -- it is after all me who wants this bug

  heh, good to know :-)

We're happy with the current behaviour of the parser (which isn't what you
describe in your original message in the latest version). I agree that the
parser mostly shouldn't alter the document, although the current behaviour of
inserting implied html, head, and body is useful.

I'd prefer if the parsing was not affected by the Doctype, because it's mostly
meaningless on the web.
