Could you provide some more detail? Exactly for which media and to *what*
extent do you want default presentation to be the same across UAs?

I've listed some objections before[*], which I haven't really seen concrete
responses to. OTOH, I have seen the odd argument that I do sympathise with
and obviously I'm all for interoperability. So I can imagine I could be
convinced that indeed "to *some* extent" could be acceptible. But for that it
would really help to know what extent we're talking about.

TIA
