If the Design Principles document content is on the agenda,
then we can discuss it, but it seemed like there was 
significant objection to continuing to discuss the 
principles themselves.

I suggested a title and abstract as a way of breaking the
impasse and moving on. Do you have some other plan for
making progress?

Are you asking me to critique the HTML document against
these design prinicples, the design principles themselves,
or something else?

Were the suggested amended telcon minutes[1] unclear?
For other examples of actual design principles used not in
the DP document, I'd start with the introduction[2],
which identifies many intended design considerations.

Focusing on the design principles used or referenced in
the actual document might be more productive than discussing
a document that seems like it was abandoned a while ago.
