Mark Pilgrim throws a fit over the apparent loss of the
cite tag in the latest W3C XHTML 2 working draft. Tantek to the rescue. One of the W3C members responds to confirm that the omission was simply a mistake and will be fixed in the next draft.
I think Mark has real passion for these things and it is certainly showing through his colorful metaphors. However, I think a bit of restraint could have been used here, considering the status of the aforementioned document (from the 'Status' section of the XHTML 2 Working Draft):
This document is the second public Working Draft of this specification. It should in no way be considered stable, and should not be referenced for any purposes whatsoever.
