I didn't mean to imply that I didn't think he was supportive of the effort.
I just hope he will be supportive of the finished _product_. We are making
some fairly fundamental decisions here and he is going to have to try to

For instance, one decision or the other on internationalization or linking
might be inconsistent with W3C's directions.
