Please don't send e-mails with just "+1" (or "-1") to this mailing list. 
While I know it seems to have become common practice in the public-html 
mailing list, it will have absolutely no effect on this list (the WHATWG 
list). I only consider the quality of arguments in making decisions for 
the WHATWG spec, not the quantity. There could be 50 +1s asking for 
something, and it would still only take one counterargument showing why 
the request is bad to change the spec the other way.

Thanks,
