 The Can I Use data for [https://caniuse.com/mdn-
 html_elements_a_implicit_noopener a: target="_blank" implies
 rel="noopener" behavior] show 89.5% of traffic uses a browser implying the
 behavior at the time of writing.

 The browsers that do not imply it are generally unsupported by WordPress.
 I tend to agree with @azaozz that this can be closed.

 I'll close this as `wontfix` as the ticket was valid at the time of the
 report. Browsers have simply fixed it in the meantime for the entire web.
