On the contrary, ISSUE-109 is an example of how someone wasted many hours of
valuable working group member time that could have been spent on substantial
issues. ISSUE-109 is exactly the kind of thing for which the chairs should be
showing restraint, and is a perfect existence proof for the concerns Aryeh,
Ms2ger, and Henri have described in this bug.

REOPENing in light of this information apparently not being previously known by
the chairs (as demonstrated by comment 7). I considered marking this
TrackerIssue, but I suspect that that would actually end up wasting even more
working group time...
