Thanks Julian, I will replace that language tonight, as it is more accurate.

Holy perma-thread, Batman. You've convinced me.

It's going to take me a while to go through:

http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/1

Currently, I intend to mark the "Hyperlink auditing" section as
controversial in the heartbeat WD after this one. The only thing that
could stop the warning language is if it's clear, after reviewing the
very long thread of discussion relating to "Hyperlink auditing", that
there is a widely-understood solution or compromise.

I'm reluctant to add items and would like to focus on removals of
warning language for this poll. Is this acceptable to you, Julian?
