Although it's certainly confusing that there WAS a validity
constraint for a while, and in fact that was the official
W3C story given to its members for over a year before it
was finally published as an erratum earlier this year.

I hope I'm not the only one who finds the W3C backtracking
to be a potential concern, with respect to stability of
the specifications on which we're building.

In effect, there was a VC for about 18 months, up to about
one month ago when E73 became public.
