Since Maciej is digging it out again - of all the things that I asked
and didn't get an answer for, I would also say that the most important
is to have a proper change proposal. It is impossible to evaluate what
the changes mean and what implications they have without such a
proposal. Such a change proposal might even answer all the questions
that I still have. In fact, I don't think the TF should allow any
proposals to be handed on to the HTML WG without a proper written
change proposal.

Best Regards,
Silvia.
