I don't appreciate these "delay" statements. The only thing that is
delaying the CR process is that few  implementers are sharing their
implementation experience and that I'm having to create test and
verify the spec on my own (and me having to waste time repeating in
emails what the purpose of CR is!). These icon bugs were caught by
Opera because Opera is turning the theory outlined in P&C into
practice.

This process will continue to take ages unless people provide
implementation experience as feedback. Rushing it will just result in
us having to constantly drop back to WD. Proof reading the spec is not
good enough any more (brains make lousy computers). We need the real
deal: running code and tests to throw at that code.
