Sorry, but I can't agree.
Making INN non-standard conform doesn't sound like a reasonable
configuration option. Will INN also accept articles with illegal date
format and broken header lines because other software does? That's the
wrong way. If someone really needs standard-breaking things it is really a
good solution that changes in the sources are necessary. Please don't add a
'breaking-the-standards' option to the configuration file of INN.
