I don't think that solution scales. Is anybody who continues to use a now

Also, unless that's the default validation mode I really don't see how that
would help with the issue.

Which sort-of requires us, as the HTML WG, to propose a replacement first. The
"proposal" in HTML5 does not work (see separate bug).
