I guess what I meant was, it's not clear to me from reading the issue  
what action might resolve it.

I think that was a very sensible approach earlier in WG history. Now I  
would like to help make the Issue Tracker a tool that we can use to  
track progress towards Last Call. I think that means clearing up  
issues where we don't intend to take action.

I believe we are agreed on the bottom line for this issue, mainly I  
wanted to clarify my intent.
