I'm not speculating anything, ROb.

Now, when I mention currentStyle.hasLayout is a source of pain for
developers. I mean exactly that. Apparently you're not using the
hasLayout in your development. Maybe you misunderstood me. I did not
say that there was a currentStyle.hasLayout property. Maybe based on
your misunderstanding, you got mad, then tried to act nice by saying
"please."

Finally, if there is a particluar part of the spec you want to
mention, then mention it.

Go ahead and question what I wrote, Rob, but do not make false
accusations based on your assumption about what I think.
