Comment (by azaozz):

 I still don't understand the reasons why few people here would like to
 change/revert this. Couple of years ago a decision was made to use the de
 facto standard (supported by all browsers) instead of the "written"
 standards (HTML 4 and XHTML 1).

 Recently the de facto standard was accepted in the "written" standard
 (HTML 5). In that terms proposing to support the soon to be outdated XHTML
 1 is indeed hard to understand.

 Furthermore this ticket seems to contribute very little in terms of fixing
 bugs or adding new features. If somebody wants to advocate compliance with
 (soon to be outdated) standards, there are better places for it. For
 example wp-hackers, #wordpress-dev, etc. Trac is for code, bugs, patches
 and for discussions about code, bugs and patches.

 @aaroncampbell as far as I understand, `scoped="scoped"` tells the browser
 to continue and apply the styles only to this branch of the dom instead of
 stopping and recalculating the styles, so it speeds up the rendering with
 few milliseconds.
