Once again I remind the WG that there are two W3C RECs (XSL-FO and TTML)
that use before/after, and that changing these for no reason whatsoever
(other than the fact the the persons that wish to make a change have not
used these two specs) is not a sufficient reason and should not be
undertaken without further substantial reason (of which I know of none).

I will enter an FO against the WM spec when it goes up for CR if this
unwarranted change is not reversed.
