It's for IE compat.

Personally I don't see much problem with extending the list to include
underscore, equals sign, and other characters that would improve or at least
not hurt Web compat, based on research. (I research the equals sign and
concluded that it would be reasonably safe to change, but Hixie rejected the
proposal. http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2009Jul/0421.html )
