This sounds good...at least it is well defined. It would mean that
there would be no excuse for level 'n' browsers to have different
HTML capabilities to other level 'n' browsers.
The above would need to be elaborated upon, of course.
Of course, for the above to work, we would really need for each level back
to 0 to be specified.
