--- Comment #9 from Aryeh Gregor <ayg@aryeh.name> 2011-08-10 17:07:21 UTC ---
The specification I'm working on is in the public domain.  If you or anyone
else would like to submit it to the W3C, or write a delta spec at the W3C, or
whatever, you can feel free.  However, my understanding after speaking with
Hixie is that he is not personally interested in maintaining a specification at
the W3C for functionality that is already adequately specified outside the W3C,
whether or not the outside specification is published at any formal standards
body.

If you object to the closure of this bug, you can escalate it to an issue, as
outlined in comment 2.  In that case you would have to find someone else to
write the specification text you want for the W3C, given that Hixie and I are
not interested (although you can copy my text if you want, since it's public
domain).

Alternatively, if you would like to reopen this bug and try to get a response
from Hixie instead of me, I won't object, since I could be perceived as biased.
 However, then you wouldn't be able to escalate until he got around to
responding, which might take a while.

I hope that clears things up.
