We had a heads-up that this might be coming through for quick review, and
yes, there is some time pressure on the HTML 4.0 spec and so Dan has had to
make a procedural determination here.

In any case, I appreciate that the HC WG is already working this issue
over, and hope that with Jason's and other's suggestions we will be able to
come up with a solution that addresses the concern that Dave has raised.
