I must apologize to the html-wg group at large, and to Roy Fielding in
particular for not obeying the golden 10 minute rule.

I will make every effort to at least remain civil in the future.

That said, I am in the process of revising my paper, and indeed,
rewriting large parts of it. Once the revision is completed, it should
provide a much firmer base for actual decision making.

Once again, apologies to all.
