There's legacy content that looks "wrong" if that doesn't render as two line breaks.

There's legacy content that looks "wrong" if that's treated as an empty element.

And this legacy content starts with "<!DOCTYPE html>"?

I believe the standard should provide a parsing mode (and a way of triggering that parsing mode) that does not attempt to be 100% backwards compatible with bizarre and confusing browser bugs.
