Sorry

I think you missed the thread.

I think her suggestion was that 4.1 was not necessary if validity was
already required in other places - at least to the extent that it was needed
for programmatically determining things.

Maybe I misunderstood her.

Yvette - did I get this right or were you saying something else.

Several people have made this point - and it seems to indicate that validity
testing would be a very good tool to use in achieving the goal of
'programmatically determined'. 
 
Roberto Scano:
Yes, this is the point. If we talk about "programmatically determinated",
validity is important both for text/html and application/xhtml+xml.

IMHO is clear that IWA/HWG is against GL 4.1 removal.
