There is no past on the web. The 'broken' past remains the web 
for massive, increasing numbers of people by virtue of content 
remaining available as authored far longer than any device or UA 
release. Since there is no reason to expect that will change and 
no browser that aims to satisfy end-users will choose to 
deliberately break vast chunks of the web it seems entirely 
appropriate for the spec to define reality in an interoperable 
manner and move on.
