Ok. Currently, the spec matches the majority of the browsers. The behaviour is
not ideal, nor is having a quirk. There doesn't seem to be a clear consensus on
what should happen.

My recommendation would be this: if you want this to change, try to convince
the browser vendors to do what you want. If you want this to be as specced,
convince the browser vendors that don't match the spec to change to match the
spec.

I'll look at this again in a few months (reopen it for me if you remember) to
see what the browsers have decided on, and then change the spec to match that.
I don't see a better way to go.
