Sure. But *I* don't want to do it for each project. I don't think we
actually disagree -- I'm just saying that a lot of these DHTML tricks
(server side programmers tend to see these as tricks, at least) aren't
as widely used because of the difficulty of implementing and maintaining
The spec makes these more accessible, even if the underlying
just arguing that the spec is meaningful and useful despite the fact
that all its pieces can be implemented now regardless of any spec.
