If we do not change this, every time someone looks at the Note to see what happened they will revisit it and likely not remember the discussions.

Won't the note be empty?... just like we did with the other APIs that were recently published as Notes.   

For example:  
http://www.w3.org/TR/messaging-api/

I would expect the same for this API... all then normative text would be removed.

We have captured recent discussions in [1]. We intend to publish that as a Note too. We could publish them together and just get the spec to reference [1]. That saves us all a bunch of time.
