Hi Dan,

 I sent this before Issue 31 was re-opened, they both pertain to the

seperately.

Can I suggest that if the editor has done considering input, the
editor provide info about this, in the Issues 'Related notes', while
the Issue remains open in the tracker to indicate that does not have
consensus from the HTML WG.
