This is the reason why a lot of people expressed concerns about the
WHATWG itself, and often personal complaints about you. They only forgot
about one thing : if "dictator" has unfortunately a negative aspect,
"enlightened dictator" has a positive one. HTML 5 needed someone like
you to do the dirty job, and I am very glad you did it because you did
it so well.
What people think of other people does not count in the end ; the only
thing that really matters is having a successor to HTML 4.
Thanks Ian.
