a, del, embed, ins, map, and object all have a transparent content model, and so they should all be considered phrasing content only when they contain phrasing content. This is made explicit in this section for a, del, ins, and map. Please update the entries for embed and object to match.

Comment 3 Ian 'Hixie' Hickson 2012-08-09 23:04:21 UTC
The whole definition of categories based on what elements contain was a wacked idea, as far as I can tell. The content model is what should be restricting this stuff, not the categories.

I've tried to clean this up. That makes this bug a non-issue.
