Quoting from the minutes:
"   timbl: one conclusion is that if you're publishing documents, then
   being conservative in what you produce involves using polyglot
   ... there's another discussion about what W3C should publish in
   ... eg using polyglot as an example for the HTML and XML communities"

It seems that the Report is too diplomatic about polyglot and failed
to drive home the point that the conclusion is that it's (generally)
not worthwhile to bother to publish in polyglot, because the consumers
have incentive to get an HTML parser off the shelf anyway (in order to
consume everything else that isn't polyglot).
