No, it is *not*. You were not part of the discussions that took place
when we wrote this document and I don't recall any comment
from you. If you did send comments, sorry for that but you were far
from a major contributor. Please stop talking about stuff you just don't
know, this is really very annoying.

 > You don't understand that CSS is supposed to be hints *ONLY*??

Wow. Trying to imply that Ian Hickson does not understand something
about CSS is a deep and major error that deserves apologies.
I wish the processor of my laptop could get new information as fast
as Ian does, with a similar level of quality.

 From all the logorrhea you posted in the current thread, I can
assure you something : there is several points *you* don't
understand in CSS and in potential languages based on the CSS
general syntax. Your definition of orthogonality seems to me
more a rhetoric figure than a real argument we could discuss.
This is my final point in this "discussion".
