As stated in the draft, it's to allow validators to not mark <font>  
elements as being non-conforming. I don't believe many people are  
convinced this section of the draft is a particularly good solution to the  
"WYSIWYG problem" though. There have been some suggestions on the WHATWG  
list by Henri Sivonen iirc on how to improve this.
