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.
