Tonio Loewald on Adobe and HTML5

Tonio Loewald:

This is procedural bullshit, plain and simple.

I know Adobe claims they’re not “blocking” anything related to HTML5, and many of you are taking them at their word on this. I hope you’re right. But they are undeniably doing something behind the scenes with, as Loewald eloquently boils it down, W3C procedural bullshit. Adobe can call it “seeking clarification” or whatever they want. I say it’s obstruction.

I think they’re trying to get the W3C to agree that 2D canvas is not part of “HTML5” proper as a first step.
