Why is this requirement useful? As far as I can tell, it isn't  
required for interop and makes an interoperably implemented feature  
non-conforming for no good reason. Moreover, it makes the conformance  
of the markup document dependent on external resource  
representations, which complicates things a lot and makes markup  
conformance a concept that you can't observe from the markup itself  

I suggest removing this requirement.
