I'm fine either way with publishing a WD or not.

My first question would be:

Why did you ignore Apple's proposal to start with a minimal common  
interface (which most people seemed to like) and instead wrote a draft  
that is the union of all things in Robin's original spec, all things  
that Mozilla happened to implement, and a bunch of the things that  
Google propose?

I can give specific technical comments on the things that I think are  
wrong with this draft, but first I would like to hear why the  
minimalist proposal was rejected. I do not believe you ever commented  
on it.
