He wonders why HTML5 doesn't have rb to express double-sided ruby and strongly wishes it back.

Hi Koji,
If you could collect examples showing that double-sided ruby is more
common than expected, I think that would help a lot. Hixie asked me
for examples, but I was only able to provide one, and he didn't find
it acceptable.
