In light of the recent change from 'should' to 'must' (RFC 2119), if
retrofitting the API is out of the question, then what exactly is the plan
to ensure conformance?  The HTML5 WG and WHAT WG have gone to great pains to
ensure that pages will conform, so please all, how or what is going to be
done to address this issue?

The spec says 'must', thus you must.  If you do not, then what happens?
Logic can only lead to one conclusion, the page is non-conformant.  What is
the price for non-conformance?  (Henri, your thoughts?)
