I don't think that URL aesthetics are a consideration for a CfC. Most of 
the boilerplate required in W3C specifications is, quite frankly, cruft 
accumulated over the years much of which we could do without. I actually 
reckon it's pretty sensible to put as little as possible of it in the 
document and only override it on the URL when necessary. It keeps things 
simple where they need to be.
