I disagree that there is any kind of agreements. The best agreement we
reached is that people agreed to disagree with the current
specification. It is not clear to me that there will be a broad
agreement on another version of the API. Otherwise, we could just move
on to specify it.

It might be preferable to make the specification a note as-is. Empty or
not, it is not that important, TBH.
