Expand please.  While I have heard people at W3C avoid
the wrath of ISOphiles by disclaiming the use of the 
word "standard", I have never heard the difference 
(if any) between what Standards and Recommendations are
used as a defense by W3C or its partisans in the face of
a "difficult question".  I'm not saying this couldn't
have happened, I'm just asking for concrete examples of 
what you assert happens "invariably". -Tim
