We've discussed this many times as the HTML partnership has evolved over 
the years.  Most recently was 10 months ago.  You had raised issues 
about there being confusion between the specs.  W3C is publishing a 
differences document [1] to help clarify the confusion.

I'm sorry that you view this as disrespect.  I've expressed many times 
my views why this is  not the case, but obviously I have not succeeded 
in making my case to your satisfaction.
