Variations on this get proposed every two or three months.  The
new feature in yours is the !required, but that isn't really needed
if you have an all or nothing grouping, and isn't particularly useful
without that grouping.

I don't know why it hasn't been accepted, although a possible reason is
that it is unrealistic to expect browser developers to make conservative
claims of compliance and fixing such claims made in error are likely
to get very low priorities in the change control systems of commercial
browser developers.  Liberal interpretation of specification compliance
is second nature to marketing departments.
