You miss the point.

The comment about vapourware was about HTML5 as a whole, not individual aspects
of HTML5+SVG integration.

If you can't understand the explanation about the comment was about the whole
spec. then there's no point trying to justify a pointless argument.

HTML5: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vaporware

You can see that http://wiki.whatwg.org/wiki/ParserIssues is pretty short. I realize that REC might be a bit further away, but it would be folly for the SVG WG to treat HTML5 as vaporware until it's "done" from the Process perspective.

>What matters in the context of the SVG WG is that the parts relevant to SVG integration have been specced and implemented (in a browser and in a validator). Thus, SVG-in-HTML5 is ahead of an HTML(4)+SVG integration profile, which *is* vaporware.
