What did you do?
================

With the new importer from bug 1171957:
1. Go to https://browsercompat.herokuapp.com/importer/4134 (importer page for https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/touch-action)
2. Press "Reset" button

What happened?
==============
Get warning "HTML element <sup> (but not wrapped content) was removed."

What should have happened?
==========================
Drop tag without warning

Is there anything else we should know?
======================================
This is often used to style footnote references.  It appears 16 times in current pages.

After more investigation, this is used on a small number of pages, and the importer is often unable to extract the footnotes in this format.  Manual work is needed to import these pages, or a more significant importer improvement (which is unjustified given the number of pages).  The dropped_tag issue is minor in comparison.
