Right, either you are compliant with a spec or you are not.  It is like 
programming.  you can write a lousy app and it may work but... interestingly 
in some programming environments, they won't run at all if not done right.

Ths is not to say you can't choose to be non compliant, but we cannot 
provide for exceptions in the spec because those who don't want to be 
compliant but want to claim compliance will work hard to fit themselves into 
the exceptions.
