And you had no authority, whatsoever, to make that change Ian. You excluded the
HTML WG from that change. You have no authority to "compromise" the spec. It
was for the HTML WG to decide what subtitle, if any, the W3C's spec should

You have no more authority to add a subtitle to the spec than I do, Ian.

You have refused to accept that the title of the spec needs to be "fixed". You
have refused to accept that there is a contradiction within the spec, moreover,
you have continued to prevent this problem from being fixed.
