You're basing an entire argument of acceptability for our purposes based on 
an assumption that is unproven. Given that we have representatives from the 
3 largest market-share browser vendors on our working group, and we've 
needed to argue this point and produce HLink, should at least give a hint 
that insisting on foreknowledge is not going to be acceptable to the 
WG...since those vendors are present, assume what you will from those 
design goals.
