Well, Firefox does not "fall back", it "trips over".

This would mean that we recommend a format that breaks the UA which has 
been doing the "right thing" since "ever", just because some *other* UAs 
do not.

I don't think we should do that, at least not until 
<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=588781> is fixed. So I'd 
prefer no advice over bad advice here.

Best regards, Julian
