Fred,

The bug was not closed by the WG, but by Glenn.

As I mentioned in the bug there has previously been no support for the
three requirements you propose, though I have no objection to us
re-considering those proposals for a short while.

The questions of whether, by not adopting these requirements, we do or do
not break with historical precedent for the "open web" and whether, if we
do, that is a cause for concern are questions for the CG.

A pragmatic approach on your part would be just to raise these questions in
the CG. However if you wish to go through another round of consideration in
the WG, we can do that. I just don't expect a different outcome from the
last round of discussions of the same issue. You can re-open the bug, which
is usually the first step before jumping to a formal objection.

...Mark
