> The standards should be realistic about interop.

Then you should change the standards, overriding the conclusion reached in
ticket 13502 (and the intentions of UNICODE, as detailed there).

To clarify: The problem is that the validator rejects something that the
standards allow, on the ground that the browsers don't implement it well;
effectively undermining the standards committees.

I find this decision unreasonable.

(I looked for some guidelines on whether it is OK for me to reopen a bug when I
disagree with the decision, and couldn't find any; please accept my apology if
this is a faux pas).
