           Summary: The willful violation clause is most unwise. A
                    standard should not violate another standard for any
                    reason. This wouls lead to 2 things : 1) Content
                    correctly encoded content would never be displayed
                    correctly. 2) All future standards would need to

Comment:
The willful violation clause is most unwise. A standard should not violate
another standard for any reason. This wouls lead to 2 things : 1) Content
correctly encoded content would never be displayed correctly. 2) All future
standards would need to include the same clause, making them more complex and
weakening the standards defining the charsets.
