So, if I have understood it correctly the Financial Times's proposal is that we reverse the sentiment expressed at the last F2F in that Andrew suggests that there is a good practice use of the online state and events.

PROPOSED RESOLUTION: Coremob reverses its position on dropping online from HTML5 so there's no need to communicate a request for it to be dropped.

We could go further and request a caveat or hint be inserted in HTML5 about "failing early". Andrew, would you like to draft some specific text for that as a PROPOSED RESOLUTION?
