Annevk pointed me to the following decision of the working group:

   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2007Nov/0216.html

So, there was a decision to publish without a declaration of consensus. 
  I'll again note that such could be done simply with a post to 
public-html which substantively addressed the one objection.  If 
somebody does so, I'd be willing to declare consensus.  Failing that, 
I'm OK with leaving the current status as is.
