Are you saying the split as it was done then is ok? Because I agree that 
that split is consistent. It's not the split we have now -- on request of 
the chairs, I changed it into the current state, which is inconsistent. 
Should I change it back?


The questions I asked in the earlier e-mail in this thread are still not 
answered in a manner that I can apply to the spec:

   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2010Jun/0218.html

I would like to request a coherent answer from the chairs that doesn't 
just consist of pointing to other e-mails that are themselves not 
comprehensible. I don't know how to edit the spec at the moment. If we 
continue down the current road the spec would just become a hodge podge.
