Those seem like reasonable indicators of something being under active
discussion, in that once the discussions have ceased being active, and
the working group has reached either consensus or a decision on the
matter, the warning would, by definition, be removed.

That one doesn't: if the working group reaches consensus to violate a
standard then the item is no longer under active discussion, yet by your
criteria it would still be labelled as such.
