I wish people just did what the spec said, but that's clearly not what happens.
WebKit changed because Aryeh filed a Webkit bug *after reading this bug*. The
Webkit bug referenced this one and said it was an open issue. It's not like it
was changed "to follow the spec, even if it's somewhat bad for the web": the
change was made in full knowledge of the situation and arguments were presented
that convinced them. Just like Mozilla isn't changing, despite a bug being
filed (and if it did change, it appears it would be because of compat concerns,
not the spec).

But fair enough. I've added a warning in the spec about this though so there's
no confusion.
