	I generally don't get involved in the ideological end of
 things; the details tend to bore me (oh, I know, they have to be
 adressed, and they are more important to some people)

	However, I do see when we are asking for an unfeasable
 solution: and when policy demands things that can't be met, then
 policy is broken.

	Also, changing behaviour of the browser may well violate RFC
 1630 (I have not looked at the RFC in question recently, though)
