Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: I agree that it is poor design, but we can't remove the existing
method, and adding other ways to do something that's already possible tends to
just make the platform more complicated and buggy rather than making it easier
for authors. So as much as I agree that the Web would be better if it had been
designed differently, this is really something we just have to live with,
because the cost of "fixing" it would be prohibitive.
