Not at all.

Some people might have tried to use it, I can say if it's true or not
without asking them, but if you take a look at the rest of the data
provided in the survey at
<http://canvex.lazyilluminati.com/survey/2007-07-17/analyse.cgi/index>
you'll see that you can find about anything in the web, and means that
lots of people don't know what they have put in their pages.

So in order to understand if they have tried to use something
correctly you have to manually test each of those pages and find out
if their use is correct or not, not just assume that it could be a
valid hypothetical use of a feature.
