That's like saying "I am unaware of ODF mail clients today that
encourage automatic execution of data as code, so there's no reason to
discourage it." Surely it's inherently problematic behaviour and its
direct encouragement of failure of interoperability has been
explained. Is there any actual useful reason to encourage it, thus
constructing a loophole the size of an eight-lane freeway tunnel?
