	This has already been dealt with in another bug report - and shortly
the two reports will be merged.

	The issue is that those icons are under a license which prevents
modification of the icons. Debian considers that to be a non-free
restriction. So if we included those icons the package would have to go
into the non-free section.

	The piece of javascript you refer to handles the the sponsorship of the
project. Quite reasonably W3C do not provide that in their source
bundle, so I doubt it is even licensed for distribution.

	We certainly could patch out the off site resources so long as we
replace them with stuff we have done ourselves. However I really cannot
see that this would be worthwhile - unless you want to volunteer of course.
