The following answers have been successfully submitted to 'ISSUE-4 &
ISSUE-84: HTML5 versioning and doctypes - Straw Poll for Objections' (HTML
Working Group) for Jace Voracek.



---------------------------------
Objections to the Change Proposal to Allow much more general DOCTYPE
syntax to be conforming, possibly including optional version information. 
----
We have a Change Proposal to allow much more general DOCTYPE syntax to be
conforming, possibly including optional version information. This Change
Proposal would also affect the set of legacy doctypes that are considered
conforming. If you have strong objections to adopting this Change Proposal,
please state your objections below.  Keep in mind, you must actually state
an objection, not merely cite someone else. If you feel that your objection
has already been adequately addressed by someone else, then it is not
necessary to repeat it.
Objections: 
It is a key necessity for the World Wide Web to operate on a basis which
does not require version-specific syntax with DOCTYPE for HTML in order to
avoid confusion among platforms. Allowing such syntax may break the
universal standards of HTML if many different DOCTYPE documents are
produced.




---------------------------------
Objections to the Change Proposal to Not Put a Version Indicator in the
DOCTYPE.
----
We have a Change Proposal to not put a version indicator in the DOCTYPE.
This Change Proposal would also leave the set of legacy doctypes that are
considered conforming unchanged from the current draft. If you have strong
objections to adopting this Change Proposal , please state your objections
below.  Keep in mind, you must actually state an objection, not merely cite
someone else. If you feel that your objection has already been adequately
addressed by someone else, then it is not necessary to repeat it.
Objections:
