Does the somewhat controlled fallback behaviour known from some
HTML browsers count as non-stylistic? I mean if an element name
is unknown, strip the tags and all attributes, but continue to
display the child elements, like
   <foo href="foo://foobarizer.com/mega-foo">More Foo</foo>
is displayed as
   More Foo
but not
   foo://foobarizer.com/mega-fooMore Foo
or dropped completely.
