So do I, for the same reason.

Case study: HTML4 disallowed empty paragraphs, in the hope that people would
not use empty paragraphs, but instead people used paragraphs with a single
non-breaking space in them. HTML5 thus disallowed paragraphs with a
non-breaking space in them, but what would be the next step that authors would
do to silence the validator but still actually use empty paragraphs? HTML5 was
then changed to just allow empty paragraphs to stop the race.
