"By that logic, it would be fine if Mozilla sent threatening emails to the President using the email addresses of server admins, since the user would not know and therefore would not care."

Not exactly. It would be more like if Mozilla refused to send my threatening letter to the President because it supported the Good President Keeping Seal of Approval. Great, someone wrote an RFC that says we should support not emailing the president threatening letters, so suddenly "standards compliance" means supporting every RFC or guideline that comes out whether Mozilla promised to support it or not.

Here, go complain that the IMPS isn't supported in Mozilla.

<http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc2795.html> And don't forget to ignore the fact that if developers are working on GNKSA compliance, they're not fixing other, possibly more important bugs.
