Once again, from :

	About of this Document

	This document describes the current practice and current
	proposals for future standardisation of HTML, as a basis for
	review and enhancement.

The idea is that if somebody's got an idea for a new feature, there
should be someplace they can look to see if anybody else has already
thought about it, and if so, they can use the same names for the
same things.

The document evolves... first stuff goes in there as "proposed," and
then folks try it out, and if it works consistently on a few different
implementations, we call it "standard" in the next rev of the spec.

Perhaps this spec document isn't the best place to keep this knowledge,
but until there's a better idea...
