6:36 PM me: (e.g., a user agent could use an array, or an object, or a
hash map, etc.).
drop each "or"
6:41 PM For each element in the elements list, if the element is one
of the following:
A preference element:
doesn't mention readonly (this might be ok, or maybe not...)
6:48 PM 1. For each file name in the default start files table (from
top to bottom) that has a media type that is supported by the user
1. Let potential-start-file be the result of applying the rule for
finding a file within a widget package to file name.
2. If potential-start-file is null or in error, ignore this file name
and move onto the next file name in the default start files table.
3. If potential-start-file is a file, then:
1. Let widget start file be the value of potential-start-file.
2. Let start file content-type be the media type given in the media
type column of the default start files table.
3. Terminate this algorithm and go to Step 9.

I'm worried about the case where a package has two files: index.svg
and index.xhtml. index.svg is 0 bytes and index.xhtml is a well formed
xhtml file. The author developed this package using a user agent which
doesn't support image/svg+xml and things worked well. A user
unfortunately gets the widget and uses it with a user agent which does
support image/svg+xml. I'm fairly certain what happens is that this
process sends the user agent to step 9 with index.svg and the user
ends up unhappy.
