Hi,

citing Aryeh in 
<http://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/40318/issue-100-objection-poll/results>:

> 2) It will increase divergence between the W3C and WHATWG copies of the HTML specification. This increases author confusion and makes the W3C copy of the standard less useful, as it grows less comprehensive. The HTMLWG's charter also encourages it to pursue convergence with the WHATWG. Hixie has implied that he will retain srcdoc in the WHATWG version even if it's removed from the W3C version: http://krijnhoetmer.nl/irc-logs/whatwg/20100804#l-884

I think that's close to extortion: "you want the specs to converge, and 
the WHATWG version isn't going to change, so there's nothing you can do".

I sure hope the chairs will ignore this part of the objection.

Best regards, Julian
