I agree with scott. The DOM may not be perfect but _lots_ of people are
trying to address the problems we are facing now and Apache is -NOT-
(and probably should never be) a standard body of any kind. This work
simply requires very different skills, and, let's be honest, it's a
black art of politics and compromises. Something I _TOTALLY_ hate.

There are very very very few people that can be spec leads, great guys
and awesome developers at the same time.

And I'm not between them, that's for sure: of course, I'm a dork! :)

I'd like to hear more comments from John. Do you think something like
the outlined above could fit with what you have or what you have in

Clark, what's wrong with you? I know you can't remain silent on these
things :)
