I'm not sure what to make of a proposal that contains requirements. That 
sounds like an order. The HTML WG does not have to accept requirements 
from the SVG WG, just as the SVG WG does not have to accept requirements 
from the HTML WG.

Accepting that mutual independence should quickly motivate everyone to 
stop negotiating and start collaborating. Actually, it only needs to 
motivate some people, since Ian and others are not negotiating, but 
rather focusing on concrete technical problems rather than policy 
ratholes and absurd scope creep into browser UI.
