Having read all the documenting materials here, I concluded as I did when I did
the research to write that part of the spec in the first place: it's a huge big
giant mess that nobody agrees on, and it's implemented in such a small number
of software packages and used by such a small fraction of users of those
packages that it would be better to dramatically reduce the number of keywords,
and then map legacy keywords to their closest synonyms, than to try to continue
to support the huge number of existing keywords that are in use today.

I believe that the spec provides a more coherent model for moving forwards and
converging existing implementations on a single model than would be achieved by
implementing the proposals in this bug and in the materials linked to from this

As such, I haven't changed the spec for this issue.
