I can't say that I feel strongly about it, but having both seems sort of 
redundant. What is the advantage over having just one of the two? If we 
add both only opera is going to be conforming in this regard, if we just 
add one then the number of browsers that work out of the box is going to 
be greater.

I don't have a strong opinion on which of the two to use though.
