Doug - No one is suggesting we write specs that are out-of-date or
irrelevant to the needs of our customers.

To that point, my original concern around the semantics and usage of the
"enableHighAccuracy" attribute still remain and the response to those
objections seems to be "we already have it so it's ok". That I believe
is the wrong reason to reject the concerns. A more valid technical
reason to reject my concerns should be presented by the proponents of
this attribute.

If the definition of this attribute was unambiguous and well-defined
then there would be no problem adopting it from current working
implementations.

Allan

ouch.  allan, he prefixed this statement with "FWIW" to avoid such  
responses.  Anyhow, if we do not consider what browsers are currently  
doing, we are doomed to write specs that are out-of-touch.

FWIW, Firefox 3.5 announced a long time ago will support both of these  
names as well!
