Another view: 1) require that a candidate recommendation be accompanied by a conformance-determining test suite (hah! eXtreme Specifying, anyone?) 2) since W3C wishes to remain a vendor forum, adopt the principles of other vendor coalitions: no recommendation may *leave* candidate status until two member organizations have produced conformant (see 1), interoperable implementations. No rough consensus; that's left to the working groups and W3C members. Hot and cold running code .... Amy! -- Amelia A. Lewis alicorn@m... amyzing@t...
