|   P.S. In answer to the rhetorical question in the subject line which
| started this thread - it is possible to devise such a feeble system (I
| presume this is referring to CSS2's lack of vertical block centering) when
| version two of a standard becomes a recommendation before version one is
| even fully implemented.  The "web developer" audience who would choose to
| point out that the emperor had no clothes in this case were too busy with
| working with what little CSS1 they could work with to bother giving CSS2 a
| critical look.
|   This is another reason why no draft should exit CR without _at_least_ two
|   interoperable (passing the respective test suite in the same way)
|   implementations (available, shipping, not experimental) for every feature
| in that draft.  Just look at http://w3.org/TR/ to see how many RECs there
| are that never met this criteria.

very well said! 
I fully support this.
