Karl, did you read an "all" into what David said?

As far as I can tell, all he's saying is that he's not alone in having 
the opinion that having two normative specifications covering the same 
ground would be a significant source of problems.

This is empirically a true statement.  For example, Hakon has the same 
opinion.  I happen to as well, though I haven't said anything on the 
topic so far.

Now it might be that we're all wrong, of course.  But the claim that 
David's not alone in holding this opinion holds.

I appreciate your position on the spec as it stands, but it's not clear 
to me from your mail whether you actually disagree with the above 
opinion.  As far as I can tell you support three separate normative 
non-overlapping specifications, not multiple normative specifications 
covering the same ground.

-Boris
