Since then, Glenn has gone on to make multiple arguments and 
suggestions, sometimes claiming backwards compatibility as his concern 
and sometimes forwards compatibility. His most recent argument has been 
that certain technical telecommunications specs reference early drafts 
of css-fonts, and hence should not be considered non-conformant if their 
implementation doesn't end up matching the final recommendation. Does 
that make sense to anyone?
