See the original message that prompted me to raise this bug:

Regarding that, I have since removed almost all of the formalisms that we previously in the document. For the description of the browsing-context-or-keyword datatype, see:

I also have since added a prose description of the concept of "browsing context":

  "A browsing context is an environment in which UAs present documents to users. A tab or window in a Web browser typically contains a browsing context, as does an iframe, or frame elements in a frameset."

That description is essentially verbatim from the HTML5 spec.
