--- Comment #22 from i18n IG <www-international@w3.org> ---
The initial impetus for the change appears to be that Trident and WebKit
supported different behaviour than the spec. If paving the cowpath is the main
motivator, we have a problem, since Trident (in IE10) prioritises HTTP over

Should we switch back to the previous approach in the light of Trident?

Also, whilst I suspect that this may in fact make life easier for HTML pages
for most cases, I wonder how much discussion has taken place about the
implications wrt other formats. Afaik the i18n folks were unaware of the
change, so we haven't discussed. Has anyone actually discussed Anne's proposal
with the CSS and XML people?
