Well, my reply was on the root level, but I was replying to the community on a whole, not the actual article.

Just because I think UI polish and a feel of quality and stabilty is important doesn't mean that I don't value standards support such as HTML4, CSS 1, 2, SVG etc. You ask if we should break the promise of delivering full HTML 4 support. Well.. if that support means that the UI will feel like a toy, like it does now in some ways, then yes.. break the promise and fix the UI! In a way, there's an implicit promise to ship a polished product and by releasing a product with a UI as unpolished as it is now, you'd be breaking that implicit promise. Do you believe we should break THAT promise?
