Is it really silly? Or does it just bother you that the lack of a
rationale for this decision makes the W3C look terrible? Apparently not
just to outsiders, at that.
If it weren't for the impact it has on lots of xml-dev readers, I'd say we
ought to drop it completely. Unfortunately, these workings affect a _lot_
of people outside of the W3C's corridors. I'd love to drop it, if it
didn't matter so much.
It's a barrel of laughs, indeed, quite silly...
