IIRC we have been following what browsers do in other cases already.
There were also some discussions about supporting HTML5 (see e.g. #7311 and #11113) and the strict vs non-strict mode introduced in Python3.

Note that changing the way things are parsed is generally not backward-compatible, but you might argue that new behavior is useful enough to break some hackish code that was trying to workaround the limitations of HTMLParser.
