I'm sorry, you might not care about the quality of script on the web,
especially ones linked to technical specifications, but I do.  And I
do not believe that anyone who is not competent to script should be
writing them.  Seen as the WHAT-WG does have at least 3 people who are
competent enough to do it on their WG, I believe it's even more
important that the examples are done well - as lack of resources
cannot be used as an excuse.

Jim.
