Or perhaps you can escalate this issue to the HTML Working Group rather than
ask other people to do so ("please reconsider"). I don't think debating this
issue further is helpful.

Some of the data points that might be interesting to find:

1. How many pages out there on the Web have <xmp>?
2. How much more time would you spend on hand authoring <xmp> than <pre>
(benchmark of a human)?

I don't think you need this sort of thing to do the escalation though, as I
don't think "I've already decided on this and you don't have new data" is a
valid argument.
