Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: How else would one send coordinates? Creating a client-side image
map with a zillion 1x1 rects is hardly better for accessibility. Sometimes, a
coordinate is what is needed.

I agree that it's not a good way of doing navigation, but then nobody's doing
that that way now anyway, so it's not a real problem. If you would like more
non-normative text in the spec about the matter I'm happy to add some, just let
me know what to say.
