I feel I could say "I'll ask you to be careful when attributing statements to others in 
general, and to me in particular."[1]

I don't believe that screaming loudly enough if the criteria that has been applied.

I do believe that the political buy-in of "standardistas" is part of the rationale for making some presentational markup non-conforming. I also believe that another part of the rationale is a belief that the Web gets better if people use presentational markup less and that the authoring conformance requirements affect the usage.
