EDITOR'S RESPONSE: This is an Editor's Response to your comment. If you are

you have additional information and would like the editor to reconsider, please
reopen this bug. If you would like to escalate the issue to the full HTML

Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: It's a bad idea to get used to not closing one's character
references, because it only works so long as the next character isn't numeric.
This is why we have a restriction here: to help authors not get used to risky
practices.
