FWIW, I agree with Hixie. Using extracts in examples is perfectly 
reasonable and changing the examples would be a waste of time incurring 
an unwanted opportunity cost (keeping the WG members from working on 
something more useful).

Would you be satisfied if the spec stated the obvious and said that 
some examples are extracts?
