yeah fine by me.

Breaking semantic is the one thing we want to avoid, technical breakages is
basically any change in some form and overly strict argument. And while not
all use cases (or implementations not following the spec one bases the decision
on) are known.

The argument is strong enough for me to go ahead with it, that is as long as
there's a pointer in the breaking changes section of release notes that is,
as then admins can find a reference to odd/changed behavior quickly and if
really an issue we can always fix it up then.

ps. trimming out unrelated quotes from mail replies is encouraged ;P
