"aren't asking" is a truism, because "[t]he overwhelming
majority of Web designers and Webmaster" are not members
of the WG, and therefore are not in a position to ask.
What matters, however, is not whether they /are/ asking,
but whether they /would/ ask, given the opportunity.
I suspect that many, perhaps even most, would : why would
a professional webmaster /not/ care enough to want precise,
definitive, documentation ?
