Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: Firefox, Opera, and WebKit use the last one when they're all the
same. They use the last one with the earliest time if there's several
conflicting times. They use different ones if the elements are inserted at
different times. Try changing the timing on this one (900, 1100, 2000):

IE always goes with the first one, exactly per spec. This is a far simpler
solution, and since it's IE doing it, likely not a compat problem. So I think
on the whole it would be better to converge on what the spec says now.

If you disagree, please actually describe in detail what the conformance
criteria should be, because I can't work out how to phrase the more complicated
behaviour such that it handles all the various edge cases.
