In the teleconference minuted at
http://www.w3.org/mid/CADhPm3s4ZmQJVgJu3pAnnHH6Q0SU3B+t5MBkLhggfD7-J=xuqg@mail.gmail.com
Simon Fraser (smfr) brought up some more complicated issues with
links and editing.  It's worth double-checking that those cases are
fine as well.

Otherwise, of course, I'm happy to see your analysis, since it comes
to the same conclusion that I've been advocating all along. :-)

             And to whom I was like to give offense.
