The only thing that bothers me about this is an active feature
required of a system to ignore what it cannot use. OTH, that is
how many features are implemented either for compatibility (do nothing),
or when that feature is finally implemented (stub). We do this
with tags we don't recognize in our stylesheets, so the
concept is not foreign to implementors or hard to explain.
I agree that this should be reconsidered.
