That's probably true, but redefining the RFC2119 terms in HTML5 so that author
and user benefits unrelated to interop are also in scope seems like an
unnecessarily drastic solution compared to the option of just looking the other
way like most specs do.

This requirement is an author and user benefit, and, like many others, would be
a benefit to the entire network if followed by everyone. It isn't strictly
needed for interop, but making life better is still a good thing.

Marking WONTFIX again; if you disagree, please escalate this to the chairs.
