Re: [whatwg] New URL Standard from Anne van Kesteren on 2012-09-24 (public-whatwg-archive@w3.org from September 2012)

Mark Nottingham still being the IETF's liaison manager for the W3C liaison,
I assume we will be hearing from him what all this means and how it's
being coordinated.

Some of the "violations" are "motivated by a desire to handle legacy
content". That seems to be in the IETF spirit of "Be strict when sending and
tolerant when receiving" for the sake of backwards compatibility. Any of them
that damage interoperability and compatibility would be more worrisome.
