--- Comment #41 from Glenn Adams <glenn@skynav.com> 2011-07-29 16:41:21 UTC ---

I do not accept the proposed resolution for the following reasons:

(1) the resolution fails to address the bug, which is that video/audio elements
do not support param children (while object does); the issue of whether source
should also support param children is incidental as noted in the original

(2) the resolution is based in part on the invalid claim that a technical
change that affects parsing is not permissible because "it is treated as a void
[empty] element in shipped versions of all the major general-purpose browsers";
this is entirely irrelevant, and probably not true either; note that any
implementation of HTML5 as currently drafted is subject to technical changes, a
consequence of the current status of the published 1st LCWD which states
"Implementors should be aware that this specification is not stable.
Implementors who are not taking part in the discussions are likely to find the
specification changing out from under them in incompatible ways."

(3) the resolution assumes the bug is intended to be used "to mint
vendor-proprietary attributes", which is not the case;

Unless this bug is substantially addressed, then I will continue to reopen it
until it is elevated to an Issue recorded against HTML5 for resolution by the
WG as a whole.
