Julian, your change proposal claims that this is not needed for
interoperability. Do you have any data showing this other than the
fact that webkit-based browsers and opera does not implement this?
Have you searched the open bug databases for webkit to see if there
have been any bugs filed on this?

My experience is that just because webkit and opera doesn't implement
a particular quirk doesn't mean it's not needed for web compatibility.
