"So by this argument, Web developers should keep with the ridiculously extensive workarounds forever and continue using broken "standards" just so that a few pages display "properly.""

See my reply to damian. It contains an example in which W3C compliance causes Mozilla to fail on a Webpage that works properly on all other Web browsers. It required absolutely no "workarounds" until Mozilla came along.

"If W3C had done what you say they'd be proposing broken standards and what's the point in that?"

As I said before, the standards were not "broken" until the W3C said they were broken. This is not all about scripting languages. The W3C has wrecked even more fundamental things.
