What if that 512 KiB of HTML contains <img src="foo.png">? Following definitions, I assume we fire off the network request? What if it contains a <x-baz></x-baz> where XBaz's constructor does `document.body.innerHTML = "<p>Hello</p>"`? Can the parsing algorithm deal with the (following the definitions, required) re-entrancy?
