Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: I agree in principle with what is described, but I don't understand
why HTML should define this. This seems like a platform convention  if a
platform has a different behaviour, it should be conforming for a user agent to
do it. It would be stupid, but there's no interoperability reason to disallow
it. It would be like the UA insisting on having the window to all Web pages be
100 pixels square. It would be stupid, accessibility would suffer, but there
may be times where it's the right thing, and more importantly it's not an
interop problem, so it should be allowed.
