Looking at "HTML Speech Incubator Group Final Report", there is a propo-
sal for a <reco> element. Let's say the Community Group adopts this idea
and several browser vendors implement it. Is the assumption that Mozilla
would implement a <mozReco> element while Microsoft would implement some
<msReco> element if they choose to adopt this, or would they agree on a
<experimentalReco> element? Or would they implement a <reco> element? If
they implement plain <reco>, there is not much room for a Working Group,
where this might be standardized in the future, to make major changes,
meaning they would be mostly rubber-stamping the Community Group output.
