You'll be pleased to know that I have indeed read what the Web Standards Group is for, and that I understand what web standards are. My original email was very clear that the method I suggested was *proprietary*, given that no standardised approach exists for doing what was asked. If there was, I would have promoted it.

If you're suggesting that my answer should have been "it is not possible", your view of web standards and how they evolve is rather regressive. Not only that, but it's also potentially harmful to the promotion of web standards to end-users, developers and vendors, and contrary to (in my not so humble opinion) the spirit of the WSG mandate.
