Well, that lack doesn't cause interop problems for other UAs... nor so 
much for content people.  It just makes XHTML unusable.  Actual interop 
issues are a bigger concern for me as a UA developer, since they 
actively hurt my users.

That's not to say that we don't think the lack should be fixed, just 
that we're picking and choosing our battles.
