  While it may sound like too little too late I would like to add my
  agreement to Shane's comments.

  Authoring documents which violate agreed upon grammars will have
  unpredictable consequences. We certainly don't need to send the
  message that this is a desirable thing. Saying, clearly, that if one
  do then things Might Just Break, is the pragmatic way forward.

  We're working on an XHTML standard - not a possible-somewhere-something
  future one. A standard which is a moving target, either in terms on
  what is decided, or what multitude of possible situations that may or
  may not occur that it tries to cover, is not worth the paper upon which
  it is written. 

  It might be that I too am out of sync with the WG. But I don't think
