This comes squarely under 2.2 of that finding; you might guess that
2006 stuff from the TAG is to be found under http://www.w3.org/2006/tag,
but you'd be wrong, and you are responsible for the consequences of that
choice (hopefully nothing worse than a 404 or a broken Web application).

How they ever reached any  conclusion at all    <cowan@ccil.org>
