Just a quick question on object tags in the XHTML1.0 that I hope someone
would be able to answer . 
In both the Transitional and Stict DTD, it is valid to put object tags
inside of the head element (see extract below...)

I believe that the contents of the head document does not get rendered
inside the browser window, 
so this begs the question of why the object element is specifically allowed
inside the head element?
What value does this provide?

<!--================ Document Head

<!ENTITY % head.misc "(script|style|meta|link|object)*">

<!-- content model is %head.misc; combined with a single
     title and an optional base element in any order -->

<!ELEMENT head (%head.misc;,
     ((title, %head.misc;, (base, %head.misc;)?) |
      (base, %head.misc;, (title, %head.misc;))))>

<!ATTLIST head
  profile     %URI;          #IMPLIED

If anyone could provide an answer to it would be much appreciated.
