Junk in standards is like rat feces in chocolate bars -- there's
always going to be some, but we try to keep it to a minimum. Think of
ANSI C trigraphs, XML unparsed entities, and Unicode combining
characters, three things that nobody but the
hard-core-I'm-going-to-prove-they're-useful-if-it-kills-me zealots are
ever going to use.
All the best,
