The Working Group and its participants may believe whatever they want,
I just object to keep the requirements as difficult to capture as you
say they are. I've pointed out in detail why the requirements are not
"trivial to capture" and proposed a way to make them considerably more
"trivial to capture". The Working Group rejected my proposal claiming
that the requirements are both unclear and clear at the same time; all
that is left to do for the Working Group is to inform The Director of
my objection as required by the W3C Process.
