Comment (by kitchin):

 Should never have landed on a release, much less all releases. I've worked
 on this code and it is complex. I'm not sure there is even a clear spec
 for how shortcodes-in-html and html-in-shortcode should work. And it's all
 targeted at a wide variety of legacy uses. I can't imagine a worse bug to
 promote to releases without landing on core. We last changed the implicit
 spec for 4.0 I believe.

 In addition, patches for this code must always be scored for performance,
 because that was the point of the last change, which was major work by
