It was never specified in html, but for example in SVG, therefore it
cannot be a problem to specify it now in a more useful way in (X)HTML.
If used before for whatever reason, obviously this was never
a relyable use, just an error or nonsense without using another
namespace ...
An I think it is a waste of time to care about any maybe existing
nonsense around, assuming that anyone really believes, that there
is a defined display for any nonsense ;o)
