I'm pointing out issues with the process that seems to be taking place 
here. I'm not suggesting discussing these elements here.

I'm not sure I like your attitude, my friend. Yes, you've asked me for 
examples. Yes, I have an interest in making sure that the next version 
of HTML does not regress to an inaccessible state. However, I do have a 
life outside of this mailing list. You're placing a rather large burden 
of proof on my shoulders and now get ratty with me and implying I'm 
being evasive?

Here, let me just put my life on hold for the next few days while I 
trawl the web looking for examples to bring to this discussion...
