I stand by the conclusion I reached in Comment #8 above.

As such, and in accordance with your new Working Group Decision Policy,

http://dev.w3.org/html5/decision-policy/decision-policy.html

it seems best to choose the NoRepy option. I believe HTML 5 is barking up the
wrong tree, but based on my experience so far, I don't think escalating these
ideas within the HTML 5 Group will bring any changes; these will have to come
at the TAG level or by the response of the Internet itself during attempted
implementation, or via HTML 5 being superseded by CCN or a similar structural
change.


But: congratulations on the writing of the 'HTML Working Group Decision
Policy', which is clear, concise, and understandable by non-experts. Would that
the HTML 5 spec could achieve this! 


(Final aside:
I would like to point out the two typos in the final paragraph of Comment #8,
where I incorrectly wrote 'CNN' instead of 'CCN'.)
