I think a lot of people can't comprehend how having someone provide
containers for the templates and provide them for linking could
possibly take up 50% of the CSS2.1 WG's time. Might it slow do that
for one or two people? Yeah I could see that. I do understand the
importance for precision here and the difficulty.

I will ask for one thing. How many man-hours a week are spent on CSS
2.1? I don't need anything approaching precision in the answer, but is
it 10? 50? 100?
