Okay, I'll keep that in mind the next time a Proposed Recommendation shows
enormous differences between its content and the previous Working Draft.
I don't think God's involved (certainly hope not), but it seems like an

like, but it smells pretty ugly to this long-time W3C watcher.
No rationale + sudden leap at PR stage -> No confidence.
