Hi David,
  The new standard errort you are refering
( seems to aim to standardize
new widgets like RTF controls, menus and toolbars

Its a nice effort..

But we already have lot of standards like HTTP 1.1,
HTML 4, XML 1.0, XSLT 1.0, SSL 3.0 etc.. First,
implementation of these should be uniform acrosss

I feel, many of the specs implemented are uniform
across major browsers(I would say 65%). Probably, W3C
should make a list of things which are not
uniform(studying themself, and by taking user
feedbacks) and submit that list to MS, Mozilla, Opera
to be implemented! MS can release patches for IE, as
it practices today. I am not sure, whether W3C charter
permits this activity.. Probably yes.. It will surely
benifit users..
