I disagree.  The MVS that should not have been written should be
displayed, so that the writer can see that he has made a mistake.

If his renderer hides the error in a post to Facebook, but other
people's renderers show the MVS and its effect, people may think that
he doesn't know how to write Mongolian.  (I've seen that happen in
Thai in a post by one of Thailand's prime ministers, who was
embarrassed to admit that he's also a British citizen.)
