My point was that it's not clear from the specification that this is a 
restriction on the _content_ and not on the _UA_.  This should be clarified.

Further, just because content is non-conformant does not necessitate 
user-agent-specific behavior (though I would be ok with it in this case, I 
think, since detecting non-conformance on the part of the UA may be impossible).
