FWIW I do not think the issue is whether someone asked for it; I think the
question was *why* they asked for it. Can you ask them or point them to
this mailing list? That'd be useful feedback, I think; implementor
requests are not all inherently reasonable and it's quite possible they're
wrong, in which case we could all save ourselves some work. Alternatively
their request is based on sound data the production of which could help us
resolve this issue and clarify the spec accordingly.

Bottom line: given two contradictory pieces of feedback, it'd help the WG
if you provided all the data it needs.

As a matter of principle I also strongly agree that optional behavior is
something we should avoid specifying in CSS or the web platform.
