Now, maybe it's not lobbying, but it's close. What are you going to do
with all these people who are asking for HSL (er HSB, as I'm familiar)?
Are they solicited opinions? Should there be further debate? I realize
that we really are little people (wink wink), but this seems like an
interesting stituation, one that I haven't seen arise on a place as
democratic as the W3C (as opposed the cross-posting on newsgroups).

I know the W3C does consider the mailling lists in it's proposals, I've
seen people suggest things and have them included, but does it consider
public opinion? Does it consider possibly solicitied public opinion?

So as not to make this completely irrellevant, can't you have HSL
client-side and convert to RGB for the style sheet. Are there any shades
visible in RGB but not in HSL or vice-versa? Is there any situation
where having HSL is important for the UA (ie for the output)? I would
say just let them make a color picker and leave RGB be, but Chris says
I've been wrong so far, and I'm on a roll....
