More errors!

The poll has errors in the second poll option:

  ]] 3. Objections to the Change Proposal to require user agents 
     ignore pragmas that specify multiple languages [[

What does this refer to? FIRSTLY: We do _not_ vote about how User 
Agents are supposed to behave - but what should be considered valid. 
SECONDLY: The subsequent link goes to a message from Ian about 
@longdesc - and - THIRDLY - the link text _again_ talks as if it is 
about how user agents should react:

  ]] We have a Change Proposal to keep the current text that 
     require user agents ignore pragmas that specify multiple
     languages, discouraging the use of the pragma, encouraging
     lang="" use instead, and explicitly requiring that 
     conformance checkers warn of this issue where relevant.. [[
     [*] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2010Apr/0308

None of the 3 change proposals will affect how user agents should 
behave - all of them deal with what should be considered legal and what 
kind of warnings there should be etc.
