We tend to value reality over philosophical purity.
Pretty much every website does this at some point, usually via navigation menus.
Forcing them to add more templating logic or JS to detect which page is the current one and remove the `href` there is exactly what I'm trying to avoid with this proposal.

If they are part of a navigation menu, they also include a path to the current page, see above re: that.
