FWIW, I don't agree with this.  In some cases, it's fair to debate editorial
changes.  To take a clear-cut case, if the editor were to insert an example or
note that some working group members thought was severely misleading or
incorrect, it would be fair to have a Change Proposal.  I don't think we should
have a blanket ban on editorial issues.

I'm not really surprised by the chairs' decision.  If it turns out to be a
significant problem, though, we can always revisit it.
