I don’t see what the problem is with this.  Even if we did have a path
syntax error behaviour that meant that the R/F commands ignored and the
following segments are still rendered, the shape is going to be wrong.
If we want to, we could have a feature string so that authors could have
a fallback path using <switch>.
