While true that Adam worked on it. He dropped it due to negative
feedback he was not interested in powering through (as I understand
it). Nobody picked up the ball for a long time (once again). When I
thought of picking the work up I did review his draft and concluded it
would not really work for how I wanted to approach the problem. So I
started anew with the whole reverse engineering dance and writing down
algorithms. And yes, I don't like the W3C process so obviously I
publish elsewhere.

As I said elsewhere, if you were really interested in helping out
here, you'd focus on getting browsers aligned. Starting with the
parsing URLs. Now that is something that truly needs help and is
biting web developers to this day.
