"Consensus" does not mean "Universal Agreement." The last few iterations
of this topic have shown that the majority of people who care prefer the
words to be seperated, and there are not technical reasons why the
seperators are damaging, or less desirable than not using them. (Note I
said TECHNICAL, not STYLISTIC.)
There comes a point when people need to just deal, and move on.
Endlessly rehashing bikesheds like this puts us in danger of going down
the road the IETF has been traveling lately, and we don't want that.
