Rather than introducing some kind of switching mode I think we're willing  
to break some parts of specifications if absolutely necessary and focus on  
bugs that are not yet fixed or revealed.

What you're proposing has not really any kind of benefit for browsers  
except to claim compliance to some standard that apparently did not make  
it in the real world and had not enough interoperability testing.
