[webkit-dev] Enabling HTMLTemplateElement by default

Hi all,

I'm going to enable the template element by default in
https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=123851 on all ports.

HTMLTemplateElement has been shipped by Chrome and Firefox for a while
and the specification has been quite stable at this point:

The feature adds the minimum amount of changes to the HTML parser to allow
JS libraries to work-around HTML parser quirkiness such as tr being removed
outside of table element.

I'm merging Blink patches for the template element I could find so that we
interoperate before enabling it by default.  You can see the blockers on
the bug to see those patches.

I'll check if we can get more tests from Microsoft/Mozilla/Opera via W3C,
and will import them as needed.
