Wouldn't it be better for the current proposal to remain in the 
specification so that it can be properly reviewed by everyone?  Then 
people can raise specific issues and suggest appropriate corrections. 
Removing it means that any future proposals are effectively starting 
from scratch, which would be wasted effort.
