  No. I mean that simply because we release a NEW standard the UA writers
  won't remove support for OLD standards. That's what I wrote, and that's
  what it meant.

  Unless what you want to do today /doesn't work/, then it would seem that
  the standard you /are/ using fill your purpose, and this discussion has
  really lost its point.

  And, frankly, from the abrasive manner you exhibit I have no further
  interest in the topic until and unless it ends up on the XHTML WG table
  for serious consideration.
