--- Comment #3 from Travis Leithead [MSFT] <travil@microsoft.com> ---
Searched across our database of most popular sites (top 100K sites), and found
~10,500 uses of meta refresh. Of those results only two sites used a comma
separator:

http://www.usfsa.org/
http://usfigureskating.org/

Both were using the same ad server:
http://adman.winnercomm.com/adman/GetAd.aspx?Zone=382 (Zone differs)

And in this case, the redirect URL matched the document URL exactly.

Unless anyone else has refuting data, I propose that we keep the spec as-is and
do not also allow comma as a valid separator for an alternate URL redirect.
