I think maybe you're the one that's naive. 90% of the HTML/CSS specs is
awesome, but that doesn't prevent people from doing terrible things with
them, and it never will. You cannot design an environment where morons
won't try to deliver you broken content to try to maximize what they want at
your expense.

Perhaps you love the WHATWG enough to miss the point: we keep hiring
magazine-trained designers to build websites. Standards can't fix that.
