At this time, the Chairs are not moving to immediately close the  
issue. We are merely asking people who disagree with your proposal to  
write up their preferred alternative as a Change Proposal.

For example, if Tab would like to see a very similar change to what  
you propose but without endorsing @summary, he can write that up as a  
Change Proposal. Alternately, if anyone feels the spec text should  
stay as-is, or should change in a completely different way, then they  
too are free to submit Change Proposals.

The Chairs haven't yet decided whether to block final resolution of  
this issue on ISSUE-32, but this call for alternate proposals does not  
have any direct effect on that decision. It just leaves our options  
open.

Regards,
Maciej
