The patent holders have failed the W3C, repeatedly doing more harm than
good.  For example, the lack of implementations of the INPUT TYPE=FILE's 
ACCEPT attribute [1] has held back the web to be less of an interactive 
medium, more like television than what it is capable of.

I wholeheartedly support the Free Software Foundation's suggestion to 
improve section 3, items 3 and 7 of [2].  Thank you for the opportunity 
to share this important comment.

Please act to implement these and other improvements.

James Salsman
