Why is the dependence of the permarecord on JS a problem?
We already know that discourse in its current state causes problems for some users, providing a record of the goings on in a form that can be viewed in any device by anyone, seems like a fairly simple ask. Its the same reason why i set up a simple minimal dependency record of a11y gitter chat http://w3c.github.io/a11ySlackers/archives/index.html
I had a mental note to ask you if you were maintaining former Specifiction niw WICG Discourse instance and if you wanted to adjust the color scheme.
You can use the one i made upwith WebPlatform color scheme fork. Take a look at this issue notes below.
