But it's not a fatal error. According to the spec an error that is not a
fatal error denotes a "violation of the rules of this specification;
results are undefined. Unless otherwise specified, failure to observe a
prescription of this specification indicated by one of the keywords
MUST, REQUIRED, MUST NOT, SHALL and SHALL NOT is an error. Conforming
software MAY detect and report an error and MAY recover from it."
