My sense was that there was a desire to incorporate the fixed SDA attributes
that allow HTML files to be then transformed for the visually impaired --
which is the relateively straightforward job that Jeff Suttor and I
volunteered for and which gets done the minute the DTD is completely
stable -- but *not* to incorporate the "other-way-round" issues, which
were the more complicated subject of so many discussions.

That stuff will wait till 2.1.

Dan and I discussed this at dinner at Seybold (with Jeff, the volunteer
in question, among others) and I think he agreed with me that that seemed
to be the consensus.
