Not sure I follow you here ... you point out a problem and a solution
which is _exactly the same_ as the people who drafted the proposal
though about and now you say "it is wrong and should be removed".

What do you propose instead? Shipping insecure browsers?  Let me quote
you "knowingly insecure web browser just should not be used."

In case you didn't get what the example is trying to say "in such
cases changes like that are justified" .

By reading between the lines I come to the conclusion that you want
the "do not add intrusive changes" clause to be removed, but you
argument in favor for it has no value as there is an exception for
this particular case already.
