Well, I'm not on either side of this dispute, but putting the following
into document:

<h1><span>July 2014 Snapshot of the URL Standard</span> <span>for the
Purposes of Patent Lawyers and Government Officials</span></h1>

and then disabling display of some content by:

h1 span + span {
display: none;

really doesn't help to anything. (Or may be it's good argument to keep
reference to W3C snapshot of the URL spec.) Folks, this is not high
school corridor, let's try to be reasonable.
