I would like to ask that you first demonstrate that you understand 
John's issue.

John has provided a high level explanation as to why this issue is 
important, he has provide a set of five bullets as to what he believes 
needs to be changed, and provided detail in the form of actual spec text.

And despite all this effort and detail, what I continue to hear from you 
and Ian and a few select others is that you don't understand.

Please demonstrate that you do understand John's issue.  You may 
disagree with it -- and that is fair, but please demonstrate that you 
understand it.

After all of this, your suggesting that we publish Ian's draft now is, 
to me, a clear indication that you have not made the effort to 
understand John's issue.

Please prove me wrong.
