I couldn't find any description of what problem this proposal is trying to 
solve. Could you point me to the description of the issue that is being 
resolved here? Why is the text currently in the HTML5 spec not considered 
acceptable middle ground?

It is difficult to evaluate proposals without understanding what problems 
they are trying to solve.

Incidentally, I believe the process that we are supposed to be following 
these days is that when there is a problem in the spec, a bug should be 
filed describing the problem, so that the issue can be tracked. If you 
could file a bug (or point me to the relevant bug if one is already 
filed), that would be very helpful.

Cheers,
