It can definitely happen like this, and that would simply be a bug.
What I meant is a JavaScript that on purpose manipulates class
names on that level. An example would be a page where classes
in singular and plural are used to distinguish different cases,
and the JavaScript did automatic singular/plural conversion that
involved adding or removing accents.
