In other words... "the web" will continue to thrive on hacks and
sniffing data to
support users' expectations in spite of the data on "the web".

I appreciate the motivation (it's not the users' fault the content
provider can't
get it right), it saddens me that there will no end of quirks-mode-like data
interpretation.  And that after this many years, we still can't get content-type
and encodings straightened out.
