Because library code which thinks it understands RFC 3779 has been
shipping for a decade now, and the WG has no magic wand which can make
that library code go away.  It is very poor form to retroactively
change the semantics of something that has already shipped, at least
when there is an easy way to avoid the problem, as there is here.
