Thank you Henri. I do not speak formally for the TAG yet, but it appears to 
me that your bugzilla filing recommends exactly the course that the TAG 
suggested. Thank you for being so responsive to our request.

I will review this with the TAG at an upcoming meeting/call to make sure 
that they too are satisfied with the direction signaled in your bugzilla 
entry. I would be grateful if you or the HTML WG chairs would alert us when 
the group makes a final decision on the disposition of your bugzilla request.

Thank you again.
