Non-XML Solutions (RE: Closing Blueberry)

And that argues strongly for a non-XML solution to 
the NEL requirement outside the XML community. If 
by solving it, that outside venue also provides 
solutions to the other Blueberry problems, perhaps 
improves some other wants and needs of XML 
(say an authoritative binary), then that solution 
may come to be preferred by a growing rather than 
shrinking part of the software development market.

James David Mason said that perhaps it is time 
for a W3C competitor.  Perhaps.  Or perhaps it is 
time for a true markup-based browser minus the 
impediments of HTML bolted in support.  That could 
well be the new competitor.

b. Seems like almost nobody is willing to go to bat 
   very hard for NEL.

As for (b), unless someone is willing to make case 
for opening up deployed systems to pretty massive 
breakage in order to simplify the lives of a small
and shrinking piece of the software development
world... as I said, if this were a WG and I were 
chair I'd suggest an evident lack of consensus in 
favor of this change.
