I was simply referring to the recent past, wherein quite a number of people who feel strongly that the API should allow the developer to directly manipulate what the browser is doing also feel that they are going unheard. I am aware of which parts of the Microsoft proposal were and were not incorporated in the specification nearly a year ago now... but until recently, there hadn't appeared to be anyone else with similar reservations.

Mathew this is simply not true. Thought most the people in the WG did not want to go with the Microsoft proposal, the editors, chairs, and WG have been very responsive to feedback from the application developer community. I view your constant claiming this is not true as highly unprofessional.

I realize most the people in the WG rejected your proposal but they have incorporated many other proposal from application developers.
