Absolutely. I wasn't objecting to the spec itself, and certainly 
not to the
WG members themselves. I've been through this loop many times before,
so I know the problems, and I want interoperable extensions as much as
anyone else. I was just acting as Devil's Advocate: it's very easy, when
you work close to the coalface, to find that some ideas take on a 
life and
persistence of their own, based on perfectly genuine and valid assumptions
that had to be made at the time. I've been willing party to enough 
"it seemed
like a good idea" decisions to be cagey about the process :-)
