--- Comment #6 from Eliot Graff <eliotgra@microsoft.com> ---
Thank you for your comments here and in the mail threads. I appreciate the time
and effort that you put in this. I do not see, however, substantively new or
different information here than in bug 9969 and bug 12725, both of which raise
the same issue. 

My response in those instances was this:

After lengthy and careful consideration, I am going to resolve this as won't
fix for the following reasons.

"Polyglot Markup: HTML-Compatible XHTML Documents" is a normative specification
that defines and prescribes behavior for "polyglot markup," as defined within
that specification. However, because there are no consequences to user agents,
only to authors (not having the same DOM and not creating content that
validates as either HTML5 or XML), I have consciously removed any RFC 2119
language, UNLESS it is required by an original normative specification.

Regarding the other issue in comment 1: as many other specifications do, the
polyglot spec relies upon some definitions that come from other normative
specifications. When and if the references within the polyglot spec are in
error or mis-quote the original spec, a bug should be logged against the
polyglot specification to that extent, and as editor, I will make corrections
as quickly as possible.

Thank you for your patience and your input.

Eliot
