Status: Did Not Understand Request
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: The browser is allowed to give "an error message that is accessible
and understandable", that's the penultimate option. Are you saying the browser
should _not_ be allowed to ignore the error and do nothing? If so, that seems
like an issue for the user agent, not an issue for the spec. Note that there
are many cases where the user doesn't even know a navigation is taking place,
so telling the user about every error would be a very poor user experience.

Could you elaborate on what exactly you are concerned about? Maybe a concrete
example of the problem would be helpful in aiding my understanding.
