My point was that nothing in those documents tells us about the big  
picture regarding the intent of those major vendors with respect to  
XHTML2 or HTML5 (other than that they made intellectual property  
available to this WG as do we all). So I would still say that we  
members of the HTML WG  (humble or otherwise) could not possibly know  
the intent of the browser vendors regarding XHTML2 support".  
Certainly the citations you provided change nothing about that.

Take care,
Rob
