> King Canute has always been a role model at the W3C.
ObMemeSquashing: Canute told the tide to stop coming in as an object
lesson to his courtiers, who had been treating him as divine. He knew

At the time he said: "Let all men know how empty and worthless is the
power of kings. For there is none worthy of the name but God, whom
heaven, earth and sea obey."
