           Summary: Drop scoped stylesheets
        QA Contact: public-html-bugzilla@w3.org
          Severity: normal
    Classification: Unclassified
                OS: All
          Reporter: daniel.glazman@disruptive-innovations.com
          Hardware: All
            Status: NEW
           Version: unspecified
         Component: HTML5 spec
           Product: HTML WG

It's proposed to drop scoped stylesheets because they are totally undefined
on the CSS part. In particular, the way they integrate into the cascade, the
specificity of scoped selectors, how web fonts are shared or variables passed,
is *totally* undefined. Since it's very unlikely the CSS WG will have time to
specify this in reasonable time for HTML5, even leaving the feature "at-risk"
is useless and it's probably a better signal for the specification and the W3C
to drop it for the time being. Warning, this does NOT say this feature is
interesting and even important for the future (for copy/paste and shadow
DOM in particular); it only says the feature is absolutely not ready for
a CR. It also does not say the html part of scoped stylesheet is not defined,
it says the CSS part is not...
