Tom remarks:
>According to the 2.0 DTD, TITLE is the only HEAD element that allows
content. Furthermore, I don't think the 2.0 spec indicates anywhere that
spurious head content should not be rendered. I'm not saying I agree with
this, just that that's what the spec says.

and I just want to remark that we are talking about a future change,
not something for 2.0.

Now it's true that my content model would break existing docs (by
removing the content attribute. I don't think that adding content
to the element would break anything, though.

However, as META is not widely used for anything yet (or is it?),
we could contemplate a backward-incompatible change to it,
especially as a patch for docs should be little required and
very simple.
