--- Comment #13 from Larry Masinter <lmm@acm.org> ---
In http://www.w3.org/wiki/Evolution/MIME I tried to distinguish between
polyglot / multiview and specialization for use cases where more than one
content label or interpretation method might apply.

The word 'polyglot' is memorable, and evokes quite well the "multiple
languages" meme. And the two languages, HTML and XHTML, are different
languages. None of the other terms suggested evoke the capabilities being

The word has entered the lexicon and discussed widely. None of the other
proposals ("United", "Robust") do anything but hide the document from people
searching for it.

Documents should be titled in a way that someone not familiar with the politics
of the committee can find the document again without a lot of bother. None of
the title renamings improve it from the current title, and most make retrieval
significantly worse (IMO).
