In the current version of our proposal [1], we have already addressed
many of the issues that were raised (see diff [2]).

There are a number of other comments, some of which may be problems with
our proposal, some of which may simply be differences of priority or
opinion.  Since you, as sole editor of the HTML5 draft, will be the one
assessing the merits of any given argument, the SVG WG needs your
detailed review of the draft before making any other changes.

Once we get your review, we will take your comments into account for our
proposal, and hopefully get closer to what you will see as acceptable.
Because this is a charged topic, it might take a couple of iterations of
feedback before we all come to consensus on exactly how best to specify
this functionality.
