I don't think I'd go that far. The HTML WG has resisted efforts to add to 
or modify our own list much over the past few years (we've declined to add 
z-caron, recently because of it), but I don't think anyone from the group 
has asserted that the W3C should just rubber stamp our list.

What I'm most interested in is a means of using such a list (whomever 
defines it) in a way that doesn't require gymnastics like internal DTD 
subsets. I don't think that's asking for anything outlandish.
