Here is where I get to be the rude bastard who does none of the work, but
complains, and can't even read the list :)

Perhaps the working group should start publishing these "mini-standards" real
fast before this I-D takes a life of its own. I don't want to see HTML turn
into something with a useless standard, and a set of "optional" extensions.
I'd like to see this get well documented.

By even publishing a simple table, or alignment standard the WG will take a
tremendous step forward in credibility. Hell, even a web site that said the
status of things where it was logically organized would help.

Flame me back, because I don't know what is going on. Let me know if I can
help be part of the solution, not the problem.

Thanks for hearing me out.
