I totally buy that it is a Good Thing(tm), and that we should do this.

It’s just that I preferred to keep my conversion-to-bikeshed commit as focused as possible on just being a preprocessor conversion with as little implications as possible on normative statements, leaning on the side of overdoing it just to be safe.

I am not really submitting this to the WG as something to discuss, as I can’t possibly see why anyone would disagree, but rather as a notice to Tantek of a piece of low hanging fruit, and ccing the www-style just because it’s on topic.
