-          The specification currently request the <dfn>user agent</dfn> to show
-          two properties: <code>bandwidth</code> and <code>metered</code>. Both

+          <code>metered</code>. The working group currently does not have
+          consensus on these.

         <p>
-          <code>bandwidth</code> is told to be hard to implement, can be quite
-          power-consuming to keep it up-to-date and its value might be unrelated
-          to the actual connection quality but could be affected by the server.

+          One concern is that <code>bandwidth</code> may be hard to implement,
+          can be quite power-consuming to keep up-to-date and its value might be
+          unrelated to the actual connection quality that could be affected by
+          the server.<br>
           A solution to fix this would be to return non absolute values that
           couldn't be easily abused and would be more simple to produce for the
           <dfn>user agent</dfn>. For example, having a set of values like
           <code>very-slow</code>, <code>slow</code>, <code>fast</code> and
-          <code>very-fast</code>.<br>
-          Another solution would be to have only values like
-          <code>very-slow</code>, <code>slow</code> and the empty string.

         </p>
         <p>
-          <code>metered</code> is also told to be hard to implement because
-          there is currently no standard way for the OS to know if the current
-          connection is metered but the idea of the specification is to leave
-          the implementation details to the <dfn>user agent</dfn>. That way, the
+          <code>metered</code> may also be hard to implement as there is
+          currently no standard way for the OS to know if the current connection
+          is metered.  The approach of the specification is to leave the
+          implementation details to the <dfn>user agent</dfn>. That way, the
           attribute could return a value based on a heuristic, on knowledge of
           the current connection status or even by directly asking the user for
           the information.<br>
