	Call me a dreamer, but I think a modular DTD for the future
and an HTMLPlus_EVERYTHINGNewerThat'sWorkableConsumer's.DTD for now,
is more likely to bring about a level playing field and correct the
wrong turns of the past two years, than is the opposite approach
reflected in the Wilbur DTD and carjacking (One can "corner the
market" and consequently dominate arbitrarily for only so long! 8-).
