>From what I understood, the original bug said "please change what HTML4 says
should happen as it is incompatible with both what implementations do and what
happens in real life".

What Aharon is saying is that he was wrong about the first half of the
statement. Upon a re-check, current implementations do follow HTML4 when
working in 'standards' mode. This means, to me, that we should avoid causing
previously standard compliant behavior to suddenly become non-standard.

In other words, I believe this bug should, under these changed circumstances,
be marked "Invalid", and its solution reverted.

I should point out that, as far as I know, Aharon does not share this belief.
He thinks that the bug should still be fixed (i.e., the situation should remain
as it is), but he was honest enough to state that with the different state of
affairs, the discussion should be re-opened.
