How does round-trip testing help the end user. For example take
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=1983_San_Miguel_Beermen_season&oldid=597926082
among other problems this has broken tags with a line
  Carlson Samlani <sup> Acquired from defunct U-Tex Wranglers ,/sup>
I'm not seeing anything in the console.  

That page actually had a worse bug, with a broken bit of markup in its infobox
template. I've created a testpage using a sandboxed copy of the broken template

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Salix_alba/1983_San_Miguel_Beermen_season

In the normal editor everything looks fine. In VE when you edit it the whole
page is included in a single template and virtually impossible to edit.

A normal editor coming to this page and trying to use VE is going to get very
confused. A warning message might help. A console message might have helped
with the debugging of the template.

I've now fixed the template so things are fine now
