I've just examined all changes to the spec on June 3rd (svn diff
-r3180:3187 source), and I wasn't able to find a change like the one you
describe. Could you be more specific?

Perhaps you're referring to r3183, which adds this text: "Authors must
not use elements, attributes, and attribute values that are not
permitted by this specification or other applicable specifications."
Note that this is an /author/ conformance requirement, not a /user
agent/ conformance requirement.
