The former is easy to do (but should not be on by default, as it would
annoy too many people).
The latter is equally easy, but is non-compliant behaviour. So it must
be a non-default option. In which case, I think the warning is better.

But why limit your request to vendors? Wouldn't you prefer free
software XSLT processors also to have such an option?
