I think this has the potential to be a big rathole.  Wasn't there a
large discussion of this related to the Selectors spec?  Wasn't the
conclusion there to not make normalization a requirement?

Since that conclusion is a subset of the issue here, I think you need
to state why you think that conclusion needs to be revisited.  And
also whether this decision has bearing on HTML5 or not.

I'm not arguing for/against, only that I think we need to put this issue
in the context of past decisions.
