More a case that any attempt to do the job properly' and create proper
relational data by using any table of 'valid' data and only allowing a
reference to that table to be used has always been frowned upon. If we
are going to 'dictate' what is acceptable content it should be managed
properly rather than blindly re-writing tags.

I'm not saying that the changes are wrong ... just that this is not the
right method to get things done.
