Quite.  The sentence that Dave originally asked 
be removed is, in some sense, irrelevant, as the 
current uses of angles are turn and direction 
insensitive anyway.  It is therefore harmless to 
remove it for those cases.

("Angle values should be normalized to the range 
0-360deg by the user agent. For example, -10deg 
and 350deg are equivalent.")
