You are making a logical point where subset implementation of standards is
common place in reality.  Also, a standard is nothing more than something a
group of people put forth.  If others don't agree with it or want only
certain part of it, whose fault is it?  W3C nor W3C worshippers have the
divine right to dictate standards to the people.
