Matthew, I wonder how can you seriously write this comment in
this mailing-list.

Even if it is a surprise for you, people in the css+fp wg always
think about security issues. Some people even disagree with BECSS !-)
Every W3C Rec results from consensus and we don't have reached this
step for the moment.

BECSS does not turn CSS in a script dump. Try to see it as a new
thing, that uses exactly the CSS grammar and format, and that
deals only with behaviours. And that's why it is discussed in this wg.
It is easy (for document providers) to agregate BECSS rules and CSS
rules in a single file and that's why it has been proposed to design
BECSS as a CSS 3 draft. That's a-l-l.

BECSS is a proposal that tries to address a problem that dozens and
dozens of people expressed during the Future of HTML Workshop, some
years ago : the componentization of the Web. BECSS is *a* possible
solution, maybe not *the* solution.

If you think that something can be saved from the current draft, say
If you think everything must be thrown away, say it. If you have a
counter-proposal in mind, please say it *now*.

But please don't say that the CSS+FP WG wants to turn CSS into a
script dump.

Oh, by the way, I remember to the subscribers of this mailing-list
that the web would never have reached the tremendous succes we all
know ***without scripts coded in the document instance***. In the real
world, the best solution is not always the purest. (Tantek, do you
agree with that ?-)
