Now this is interesting.  Do you recall WHY the WG wanted to use
character data only for things that were textual in nature?  I
am not being critical here.  I just sense a gem of wisdom I do
not yet have.  I am intrigued.

No.  I am not placing the blame on you.  I am disappointed with
the likely turn of events you are predicting.  Your responses are
appreciated still.

I accept my share of the blame.  Like everyone else, I was (and am)
under an endless avalanche of specs to read.
