It looks like your implementation doesn't follow the specification. For  
instance, your implementation sorts the candidates while the specification  
uses markup order.

Personally, I would like to see an implementation that implements the spec  
literally in order to better assess whether the specification is good or  
not. I'm not saying that you have any obligation to do that, though; maybe  
you have different goals. :-)
