I think you miss my point: they might finally comply with the specs one
day (if you ask or not, others might) and you will have forgotten about
this little subtle problem and upgrade your routers and voila your
network is broken.
If I where you, or anybody else who is using this 'feature' I would be
wary of it and make a big big note for the test-lab to test this before
shoving new versions to the live network.
