Well.

Proposal 
(<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2010Apr/1107.html>):

      <p>For an enhanced experience, we recommend that you install
         the <a href="/get-plugin">O3D plugin</a>.

Actual text 
(<http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/the-iframe-element.html#the-object-element>):

  <p>To see the teapot actually rendered by O3D on your
      computer, please download and install the <a
 
href="http://code.google.com/apis/o3d/docs/gettingstarted.html#install">O3D 
plugin</a>.</p>


It's pretty clear that you wanted to avoid having "plugin" and 
"enhanced" in the same sentence. It's also not entirely clear what was 
wrong with the given link.

At this time, I'd propose that you simply execute the WG decision, and 
open a bug if there's something you're unhappy with.

Best regards, Julian
