You have grossly misinterpreted Ian's statement.

The Editors are but two men. There is a large amount of feedback on  
the spec sitting in the Editors' In Box[1]. The Editors are  
processing that feedback in a (roughly) FIFO manner. The headers  
issue is some ways back in the queue. When the Editors get to that  
point in the queue they will take the feedback and apply it to the spec.

All Ian was saying was that the Editors have not reached the point in  
the queue at which the headers discussion lives.

Patience is a virtue. :)
