Hi,

In the latest incarnation of the @alt permathread, I've noticed several
people state or imply that the HTML WG's editors are ignoring or have
ignored the advice of the PFWG. For example:

> PF's advice should not be ignored.

As I've seen it, the editors have carefully considered all feedback from
the PFWG, along with input from many other sources, and have made
significant changes to the spec as a result. This is as far from
any ordinary understanding of "ignoring" as possible.

Now, maybe by "ignore" what people really mean is "failed to accept
uncritically..."
