Is this a requirement? I can understand that it is simpler to only have 
members propose change proposals--they need to be shepherded through the 
decision process. I can withhold my submission for a time to see if 
others volunteer.

As is obvious, I am intensely interested in HTML5. Frankly, though, I 
don't feel comfortable with the HTML WG. I'm not sure re-joining would 
be good for myself, or for the group. I get the impression that I am an 
unwelcome disruption.

If this is a requirement for change proposals, I need to think on it.

Yes, Issue 41 is much older. I could see it taking precedence over any 
other action, including my older survey items.

That's good to know. I hope you do re-open it, then. Perhaps after Issue 
41, or some of the others are resolved.

By the way, the suggestion for an HTMl5 overview document[1] was an 
excellent one. I don't know about Issue 116, but the idea is an 
excellent one, regardless of what happens with this issue.
