The link you provided here reveals the first WebArchive capture 
of that particular page -- but this is not the original content.

Note --

   Date: 2006-07-27, last change: $Date: 2006/10/25 16:33:40 $

Unfortunately, TimBL's pages do not reveal their revision history,
only hints like the above, that *some* change has been made.

Even if it were the original document, I submit that the vast 
number of typos and other random errors found in the DesignIssues 
pages, coupled with TimBL's own notation --

   Status: personal view only. 
   Editing status: imperfect but published.

-- must be taken to mean that their content is *not* to be 
treated as words from Mount Olympus, but rather as food for 
thought and for discussion.
