Incremental rendering has already been broken in CSS2 by the existance of 
positioned elements. Incremental orendering is going to have to be broken some 
more if footnotes and endnotes are to be added to XHTML in any useable manner 
in my opinion. Breaking incremental rendering therefore is not a good reason 
for being against this idea. (There may be good reasons to be against 
providing a means to manipulate the rendering order of a list, but this ain't 
one of them.)
