All I'm saying is that you cannot expect everyone at the W3C/WHATWG
side to be paying attention to this. I know you want to, but I have
not seen it happening. It seems to me there's not much of a problem
with modules (apart from maybe some fetching specifics which I emailed
separately about), but a little bit more coordination on
would be good I think. Especially when it will effect long term how
certain things are to be done. All I want here is more shared

Despite your frustration, I'm thankful for the replies.
