I didn't exactly propose getting rid of the restrictions.  Rather I 
proposed that they should be distinguished from other well-formedness 
errors (or moved from well-formedness into some new layer) so that they 
didn't cause fatal errors.  The arguments I remember were arguing why the 
restrictions were good (which I agree with not) not why they should be part 
of well-formedness.
