Well, I agree strongly that the members of the WG have to take this
journey for themselves, and I'm not intending to short circuit that
trip.  But just as strongly, I believe that what they will find when
they do this is that strictly aligning with the Web will do what they
want.

Respectfully, I'd ask that you withhold judgement on which approach is
best until it's clear what "align with the Web" means.

Cheers,
