EDITOR'S RESPONSE: This is an Editor's Response to your comment. If you are
satisfied with this response, please change the state of this bug to CLOSED. If
you have additional information and would like the editor to reconsider, please
reopen this bug. If you would like to escalate the issue to the full HTML
Working Group, please add the TrackerRequest keyword to this bug, and suggest
title and text for the tracker issue; or you may create a tracker issue

Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale:

This would just be magic, which leads to confusion. I don't think it would
help. It's not like people aren't going to work out what's going on, or not
notice it — a pattern that nothing matches will be caught pretty quickly.

Please file a bug on Webkit.
