One other thing, your statement:

'For example, in the case above, the working group decision could have been
html specification should not include optional implementation advice", or "the
html specification should not attempt to improve accessibility" or "the html
specification should not acknowledge the possibility of authors making
authoring mistakes", each of which would result in the paragraph being removed
but would _also_ result in the spec being consistently updated so that it
remained coherent.'

Such broad outlines based on a simple decision to move one unnecessary and
confusing paragraphs is ludicrous. In addition, you have demonstrated an
inability to refrain from making damaging wholesale changes, as reaction to
something you disagree with. 

If you can't understand how to edit the document based on group discussions
than yes, you probably do need to resign. Or the group needs to add additional
editors who are not encumbered by having these overly broad decision policies
attached to even minor decisions.
