Dera Patrick, Dear David , dearest all: 

Nowadays, there is an agreement this may become an sterile debate, if
the issue is that there is no time to invest, neither and agreement on
what should be done. 

I propose, if there is any interest on the matter we are arguing, to
open a branch, and those of us who have the will, who see the need, and
dispose of some spare time to invest in a possible solution ( to be
presented in a future as an enhancement or a  recommendation), put our
hands to work. 

Count me in, _if there is a small group of devoted volunteers who want
to extend or put his hands dirt as an  __exercise,_ for file and ftp
URLs [6 [6]] in the fetch spec featured in WHATWG. 

Sundays I'm on.

"Appeal to authority" is a logical fallacy. An authoritative source
doesn't make an argument true.

I disagree with the idea that HTML files on offline media or a closed
intranet are part of the "world wide web".
