Mark Pilgrim started a new wave of permathreding by "There are no exceptions to Postel's Law" rant arguing even malformed RSS feeds should be accepted.

I'm strongly on opposite side. Accepting malformed XML - what a heresy! My understanding of Postel's Law a bit differs. "Liberal" in "be liberal in what you accept from others" means different formats/versions/encodings, possibly obsolete and rarely used, but by no means malformed/broken/compromised.
