I note the irc log shows that it was proposed to add no new semantics to 
cover collections


but that no decision was recorded.

Webont asked for this on the grounds they needed the syntax.  We've told 
them we have done it and they have expressed no concerns with our 
solution.  I note that both DanC and Pat are active in webont and their 
difference of view has not surfaced there.  I will be prepared to reopen it 
if WEBONT come back and raise an issue with us.  I don't want us going off 
and removing it urged on by individuals without the consent of the WEBONT 
WG since, they asked for it in the first place.
