I'm not used to using W3C Bug Tracking service, I'm sorry in advance if this is
inappropriate way to respond to an issue. I also apologize for the late
comment.

I was reviewing HTML5 ruby for accessibility purposes, and I found that without
rb tag, accessibility readers cannot distinguish base characters to highlight
when multiple rt exist through DOM.

<ruby>
  B1<rt>R1</rt>
  B2<rt>R2</rt>
</ruby>

When reader is reading "R1", I can't get "B1" through DOM as far as I
understand. Apps want to distinguish which rt corresponds to which base
characters, and I suppose rb tag is the one that gives me.

Could you please reconsider the decision?
