I favor issuing the erratum and allowing this. It costs little and is
consistent with the rest of how XML behaves. Regarding the argument against
allowing an 'illegal' i.e. non RFC 3066 value for this attribute, my
preference is for XML 1.0.x to contain its own definitions to a reasonable
extent, but even when external tables of values are referenced, to maintain
control of questions of 'well formedness'  and 'validity'.
