I want to preface this reply with a comment that I deeply respect the 
attention to detail that Laura puts to both her concrete proposals and 
on capturing requirements.

I will say that this particular reply doesn't live up to that high standard.

Just as the HTML WG chairs agreed to reopen the previous decision based 
on new information, I encourage you to continue to be open to discussion.

Richard has stated an opinion as to what he currently considers to be 
two options.  You have an opinion as to what was previously discussed.

Whatever was the case a year and a half ago, Richard has stated his 
opinion as to what he considers the viable options as of today.

I'll also note that the names that Richard mentioned include people that 
haven't actively participated here, at least not recently, for whatever 

I encourage everybody here to find ways to expand participation and 
foster collaboration.
