Am I alone in finding this inter-WG squabbling both petty and irritating ?
/If/ there is a problem caused by a conflict between the draft specifications
of this WG and the XHTML2 WG, then surely the first step should be a friendly
note from one or both of our co-Chairmen to his or her opposite number(s) in
the XHTML2 WG, explaining the problem (as perceived by this WG) and asking
if (a) the XHTML2 WG are aware of the problem, and (b) how they propose
that it best be addressed.
