ISSUE-109 is exactly the kind of thing for which the you as the editor should
be
showing restraint, and is a perfect existence proof that the you want control
of every word and sentence in the HTML5 specification, that is not a W3C
editor's role, you are not sole author of HTML5. If issue 109 is as
insubstantial as you claim you should not have insisted upon having your
way.You should have accepted the change and moved on instead of wasting many
hours of valuable working group member time.
