Sometimes ignoring a problem really does make it go away. Install a
workaround, on the other hand, and the brokenness remains non-obvious
so it persists.
I'm not advocating going around and breaking implementations that
don't fully conform with specs on purpose, but if doing the right
thing means that out-of-spec implementations see some problems, I can
usually live with that.
