WPWS WordPress Web Standards

    Hello good people! :)

    I would like to propose: WPWS WordPress Web Standards

    This would be a compliance thing where all theme developers and plugin developers and any and all WordPress developers adhere to a managed set of standards so that 100% INTERcompatibility is guaranteed.

    Think it's impossible?

    So was the four minute mile and man on the moon.

    I'm one of the people who uses WordPress for client sites.

    I imagine that I loose about two+ hours a day supporting compatibility issues.

    Things on WordPress sites just break and randomly happen so I go to the forums and help desks for all of the tools I use. Then I wait. And clients wait. And tomorrow we might find a solution.

    Today a Simple-Press forum had an issue with a child theme in the Genesis Framework. Yesterday and the day before it was an upgrade to a plugin that caused another plugin to misbehave. And tomorrow it will be the same.

    In my Utopian WPWS world I'd always and only use products that were WPWS compliant. Then I would get my life back.

    As Lennon said, "Imagine..."

    I would like to imagine that the majority of all WordPress related support systems, ticket desks, forums and FAQs would become about 60% less active because of WPWS.

    And all of us would gain so much more time in life.

    Lennon, Bannister, Armstrong, WPWS...

    Thank you,

    Love it.

    How would you define the areas needing standardization?

    Thoughts on a process to arrive at standards?

    Consequences of sticking/not-sticking to standards?

    I don't think so, WP is very young and non-unique platform that have a standard.

    Are there any unique functions in WP platform? Xml-RPC ? trackbacks? it's realy old standard and protocols.

    What do you think what part of WP really can pretend on a standard?

    The freedom of changes in a software is the main goal and the adwatages of GPL. Any standardisation will slow down the development.
    The coding is good, es clean, good documentated, so if You like to chage something, You can do this easily.
    The plugins are almost compatible, there is no reason for any standardisation,
