How about we take the state of the art of HTML plus forms as currently
supported in Mosaic for X 2.2 -- and either fully supported or getting
pretty damn close to being fully supported in a number of other
browsers -- and issue an informational RFC within the next month or
two, including a working & complete DTD.

This would add some greatly-needed coherence -- "meat", if you will --
to the WWW standards evolution process.  And just think, we could
actually register to get a real text/html MIME type finally.  While
having something that matches existing, widely-used implementations.
