A C compiler runs on the developer's machine. This is different from  
content produced by one party and consumed by many others using a  
variety of tools, where there is more benefit to being lenient in  
what you accept. More importantly, in such cases it is important to  
define the error behavior so that it is consistent, to avoid the  
reverse engineering arms race that we've had for HTML error handling  
in the past.
