The following answers have been successfully submitted to 'ISSUE-90:
Removing the figure Element - Straw Poll for Objections' (HTML Working
Group) for Krzysztof Maczy&#324;ski.



---------------------------------
Objections to the Change Proposal to Remove the figure Element
----
We have a Change Proposal to remove the figure element. 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: 
1. This CP assumes that figures need to be graphical entities. While true,
obviously and necessarily, in print, a medium from which many Web ideas
have been and still are borrowed and abstracted, this happens with
generalization and should take media independence into account. The
abstract idea of figure is distinct enough (though perhaps the spec wording
may benefit from more massaging) and fits well enough into a general
language for marking up hypertext. (To phrase it remarkably, this objection
of mine has the same grounds on which I object to img not even being
deprecated.)
2. This CP does a disservice to the ASCII art use case.
Note that this response doesn't constitute support for the naming of
figcaption (particularly whether it should be separate from all of legend,
summary, etc.).




---------------------------------
Objections to the Change Proposal to Keep New Elements and Attributes
----
We have a Change Proposal to keep several newly-introduced semantic
elements, attributes, and controls. If you have strong objections to
adopting this Change Proposal specifically with respect to the figure
element, 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:
