Are you seriously saying that vendors should implement whatever they want, 
instead of implementing the spec, if they find something that is easier to 
implement? Perhaps the W3C should stop writing "Recommendations" and start 
writing "Hints". But I don't see how that leads to interoperability, and I 
think users want interoperability.

Please, Dare, if there are things that require undue difficulty, be very 
specific about what they are, and post to our public comments list. Don't 
just implement whatever seems easiest and ignore the spec.
