Also (I am a WHATWG cofounder) it is overreach to promise obsolescence 
on any timeline on the Web. Robert should not worry about real browser 
implementors breaking content by removing sync XHR -- to do so would be 
to lose market share.

In this light, WHATWG should avoid making indefinite-timescale, 
over-ambitious assertions. The W3C was rightly faulted when we founded 
the WHATWG for doing so.
