you have additional information and would like the editor to reconsider, please
reopen this bug. If you would like to escalate the issue to the full HTML
Working Group, please add the TrackerRequest keyword to this bug, and suggest
title and text for the tracker issue; or you may create a tracker issue
yourself, if you are able to do so. For more details, see this document:

Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: Why would you want to publish a file with a disabled style sheet?

If the need is just for round-tripping during editing, then there's no need for
the editor to limit itself to the HTML standard. Just use a custom attribute
documented in a spec that applies to the documents used during editing. You'll
need something similar to handle all manner of other round-tripping
complications, like whitespace around the DOCTYPE or between attributes, the
order of attributes, values in input controls when those aren't the default
values, the current alternative style sheet set selection, the current scroll
position if it doesn't match an ID, etc etc etc.

If you actually want to publish a disabled style sheet, just comment it out.
