Since this topic is a potential security flaw in shipping software, I 
think it's probably unwise and irresponsible to be discussing the details 
in a public forum.

I'm sorry I sound like I keep trying to shut down this thread. I'm really 
not trying to do that specifically. This thread just keeps accidentally 
entering into the kinds of areas that we try to keep off the WHATWG list, 
to wit, non-technical arguments, arguments about other groups' 
specifications, arguments about implementors' plans and motives, details 
of unresolved security issues, and the like. For the record, other areas 
that we try to keep off this list include: discussions of the group's 
policies regarding what can be sent to the list, anything remotely 
ressembling harassment of any person or group of people, and generally 
anything that doesn't directly relate to technical changes to a WHATWG 
specification. If you have any questions about this please don't hesitate 
to e-mail me privately about them (you can even cc www-archive@w3.org if 
you want a public record of the conversation).

Cheers,
