I repeat what I said earlier this week:  Is it genuinely a problem, in
the real world, that people are using private-use codes or tags where
there is no agreement, leaving users clueless as to what they mean?

Can anyone cite instances where this was an actual problem?

Failing that, is the strength of the caution really a significant issue?
