Well, I'm not so sure. I'm hoping for some debating! :)

Considering that Chris Wilson is the chair of the HTML WG as well as the  
Platform Architect on the IE crew, plus the fact that several members of  
WHAT WG (including myself) are now members of the HTML WG, don't you think  
it's possible for us to bring forward this idea and get Mr. Wilson to  
notice? It's at least worth a shot, imo.
