Well - my understanding was that despite the fact that Ben stopped 
caring about href everywhere, the group decided that href should NOT be 
everywhere because we are augmenting XHTML 1.1 and in XHTML 1.1 it 
doesn't work everywhere and we were trying to be compatible with 
existing browsers to the greatest extent possible.

Ben, can we please discuss this briefly at the meeting today?
