I note that as is often the case when the blatantly obvious is said we
have disagreement by unresolved reference.

If you can't give a reason for a disagreement then you should probably
think a bit before posting and wait until you can state what the
disagreement is.

We have two standards bodies here. What is the reason to NOT have a
common standard?


BTW the only 'tools' I needed to produce W3C docs was the bit of code
to rip out the style crud produced by Microsoft Word and another that
produced the index.

I used the same tools to produce W3C and OASIS docs.

There are some people on the rfc-interest list who agree with him about the requirements, and some who do not. I propose that you don't assume that Larry is right, and I don't propose that you ask the IETF what your requirements should be.
