    initial v1  
    33There is plenty disagreement to go around but placeholders have enough use cases and agreement to make it into the spec. Even in the below-linked page, there is the discussion on how to address the usage and Accessibilitiy without the arbitrary removal of placeholders. Nobody is saying this is not a complex issue, but simply doubling down on the argument to arbitrarily dictate this issue for everyone that uses WP and to say "we won't support the spec" is still no more legitimate following your reply. The argument seems to be to simply point out that some developers/designers misuse the tools at hand so the tools should be removed/denied. That is enough argument to remove the entire internet.
