(I hope the other browser vendors' rationale isn't actually "not caring

It's not pointless: it discourages people from doing things that increase
the chances of their page breaking in the future, and makes it easier for
developers to ensure their own code isn't doing it by accident.

(Of course, it would be nice to do this in validators, but that's not very
practical with static analysis.)
