While I understand that we want to give them more quicker, where is
the push coming from to topple over our own feet? I mean, I have Tab
on record somewhere acknowledging that he doesn’t even know all of
CSS. Not that that’s the expectation, but if we here don’t even know
what we’re dealing with, then who is? Shouldn’t there be some urge to
self-preserve? What may just happen one day is that CSS grew into such
a beast that we need CSS Light, or, worse, something else entirely.

(Maybe more of a burst of additional thoughts than a good response, Liam ;)
