Question: why is this currently a WF error, as opposed to a validity error?

Are there any known cases of processing that *depends* on this being
a WF error (and would thus be surprised if it someday became allowed)?

I too would like to see some experimentation with alternatives, but the
WF obstacle is pretty tough.
