HTML5 elements vanish when rerendering Visualforce

I have noticed that HTML 5 tags like <section> and <header> disappear from the page when I reRender the page. On initial load of the page the HTML5 elements appear as expected but when the section is refreshed using the reRender of actionFunction, all the HTML5 elements vanish. Does anyone know how to address this?


This has been filed as a bug with reRender (VF) removing HTML 5 tags.

As a workaround I have used Javascript remoting to retrieve data and update the page manually.
