--- Comment #15 from Henri Sivonen <hsivonen@iki.fi>  2009-11-25 08:26:53 ---
ePub is irrelevant to the question of removing stuff from the spec. The HTML WG
is creating a spec for the Web. Parties who don't work on Web stuff are free to
lower their R&D costs by reusing Web specs in non-Web contexts (e.g. offline
browserless ebook readers). However, if a non-Web usage doesn't need something,
it's no reason to remove that piece from a Web spec.

(I'd also argue that the WG shouldn't add stuff in order to cater to non-Web
use cases.)

I think bugs of this flavor should be WONTFIXed, because they harm the goal of
having the Open Web Platform well specified. (Having the stuff in *a* spec is
more important than having the specs split according to anyone's particular
spec-aesthetic preferences, IMO.)
