Unbelievable. ;-)

Yes, it's good idea to give recommendations here instead of requiring smth. It
makes sense to adopt this practice more widely in the HTML spec.

Maybe. But, quoting yourself, wouldn't it be confusing for authors who do not
read specs (as well as do not care about validation) at all?

Anyway, it may make sense to just rollback rules for TH to HTML4 state, and,
instead of inventing some blacklists, work harder on more important things like
providing consistency between good-practice server-side validation and
client-side one (bug 13769).

Thanks.
