the resolution to ISSUE-125 removes the claim that this is a willful 
violation of HTTP, required by existing content. This is good, as I have 
shown that it's *not* required by existing content (IE8 does not behave 
as described).

In the meantime, IE9 *does* implement the described behavior. I think 
this is very unfortunate, because it wasn't needed, will add unnecessary 
confusion, and also make future extensions much harder.

That being said, as Microsoft apparently believes this is a good thing, 
I'll retract my change proposal (the other aspect of it being addressed 
by the resolution to ISSUE-125).

Best regards, Julian
