It is a Technical Specification.  And certain is of or about a 
"HyperText Markup Language".  There are a number of ways in which it 
goes beyond that.  If the title and abstract were to accurately reflect 
that, Roy's objection would evaporate.

I don't see this as something we need to resolve now, particularly given 
the rate at which sections are being added and split off.  But it is 
something we need to address prior to Last Call.
