Relevant links:

"If any Working Group member sees a change go into any draft subject to 
a cutoff that seems controversial and likely to reduce rather than 
increase consensus, the correct step is to let the Chairs know, ideally 
via a post to the public list."

"If any Working Group member sees a change go into any Last Call-track 
draft after the October 1st cutoff that seems controversial and likely 
to reduce rather than increase consensus, please let the Chairs know and 
we will make the call."

My input (without having vetted it yet with my co-chairs) is that I have 
yet to see any technical justification for this revert request, so I 
would not support it at this time.  I do, however, see that the 
TrackerRequest keyword has been added, and if raising an issue will 
ultimately result in a Change Proposal that includes a technical 
rationale, I would support the opening of an issue.  Note that this step 
doesn't need to wait for a chair action, any of the following may take 
this step:

Finally, if there are comments on the process for changes made without 
prior discussion on the working group, I encourage them to be recorded 
in the Decision Policy bug on that topic:
