Yeah, agreed.  It amazes me how so far the discussion has been incredibly 
double-standarded and slippery.  This discussion amounts to "we can't paint 
the wall green because then it would be green" with a few tangents here and 
there.  Fully agreed with you, Jeff.

Yes, do us the honor of restoring the text in good faith while the discussion 
continues.  It's not like you're gonna ratify HTML5 tomorrow as a sour 
Christmas present anyway.

You'll never see all the places, or read all the books, but fortunately,
