So you _like_ the model where specs contain trillions of features that
_you_ get to pick and choose from?
I'm sorry Len, but I think you've been selling closed systems for way
Those of us out in the open world can't cope with that model, and damn
well shouldn't have to - especially on specs from the W3C, which
theoretically cares about the useful-because-it's-an-open-model Web.
You may be _a_ customer, but you aren't the only one.
