I retract the claim that it hasn't been made; I think these messages
make a decent argument for it:
  http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2009Jun/0179.html
  http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2009Jun/0185.html
I'm not in a position to weigh those use cases against the other
problems, so I'll withdraw from this debate.

I regret that such a coherent explanation was not present in these
messages:
