Right, so we have the same result on every other issue, could you
clarify the process document once again to reflect what areas are
consensus bound, and which are set in stone.

For example, if we look at the paper it says:

"Users should not be exposed to authoring errors "

I read that as saying that no XML profile is appropriate for WF2 -
since XML by definition requires that non-WF documents are a
catastophic fail.  So the WF2 work doesn't follow that principle of
the paper.

So I look forward to the removal of the XHTML mess (something that a
number of people on the list have already agreed with)
