Effectively, fully specified error behaviour ceases to be error behaviour
and becomes part of the normal behaviour as far as people trying to
get the most out of the language (or for text media, trying to defeat
spam filters) are concerned.

The only specified error behaviours that won't have this effect tend to
be unacceptable to browser writers because they shame the content 
authors (e.g. completely suppressing display of the whole document,
or large unmistakable BROKEN SVG banners).
