We previously vacated the original issue 131 decision, reopened the 
issue, and allowed changes to be made:


Now Richard is asking that we effectively consider his proposal 
withdrawn for the HTML5 time frame.  Frank has also agreed to postpone 
this to HTML.next:


Given that no active proposals remain, the chairs are now asking if 
there is consensus to roll back the hit testing proposal and to defer 
the feature to HTML.next.  If anybody would like to raise an objection 
during this time, we will require them to accompany their objection with 
a concrete and complete change proposal.

If no objections are raised to this call by August 30th, 2012, we will
direct the editors to make the proposed change, and will only consider
subsequently reopening this issue based on new information and a
complete change proposal based on the spec's contents as it exists after 
this change is applied.

- Sam Ruby

Note: while the process for HTML.next has not been determined, people 
are welcome to publish proposals for what the spec should look like, and 
should any Working Group member chose to do so, we will make provisions 
to publish same on the W3C site (alongside any other proposals that may 
be made)
