I guess.  The provenance of any specification is important to those who
review it.  Or at least it is to me.  Also, the look and feel on that site
makes me want to punch something.  But that's for another time I imagine.

Let me be clear.  I am NOT objecting to anything here.  And I don't care
what sort or URI is in a CFC.  What I do care about is that W3C specs look,
feel, and taste like W3C specs. That's about branding, but also about
process, copyrights, patent disclosures, relationship to other
specifications and other standards groups,  reviewer comments, and many
other things that I am sure some thing of as "cruft".  Fine.  Call me
crufty.  I am old, and I will own that.  But please let's not lose sight of
our overall responsibility to produce W3C specifications.
