The function doesn't make sense, but it's required for compat.  So require
support but note in the spec that it doesn't make sense and authors shouldn't
use it.  This is no different from tons of web features that are
stupid/useless/redundant/bad ideas/etc. but that we spec and keep forever for
compat.  Like, say, quirks mode.  This is probably only a handful of lines of
code to keep, so it's not worth trying to get rid of if there are nontrivial
compat issues, which there are.
