The change in HTML5 is probably motivated by this letter: 

   http://lists.whatwg.org/pipermail/whatwg-whatwg.org/2007-July/012108.html

But note that  HTML4's behavour is (still) implemented in:

  * Opera 12 pre-beta
  * Internet Explorer 9 and down (but IE9's XML 
    parser implements the HTML5 behaviour)
  * Firefox 3.6 and down
  * Oxygen (using a Xerces parser)
  * XMLmind XMLeditor (using a Xerces parser)
  * XMLlint's  HTML parser
  * Text browsers: W3m, Links, elinks, Lynx
  * Lobo Java web browser (both in XHTML 1 mode
    and HTML mode)

(current) HTML5 spec is implemented in:
  * Webkit (Safari 5.1 and Chrome current)
  * Firefox 4/Firefox 7
  * The XML parser of IE9 (regardless of whether a DTD declares it)

Unknown/Not tested:
  * Konqueror
  * IE10-beta

These entities can be used to separate HTML5 parsers from other parsers ...
