You know, I've been looking at the current HTML5 draft over the course
of the day. I've read it pretty thoroughly. And I can't for the life
of me find the bit that "ensconces an encumbered technology". Would
you be so kind as to point me to it?

I ask because all I see is a strongly-worded paragraph about the need
for an open, interoperable, unencumbered format. Perhaps my eyes are

"Bureaucrat Conrad, you are technically correct -- the best kind of correct."
