It feels like a personal insult to every member of this Working Group
that this is actually allowed to become an issue and waste our time.
This is about the *Acknowledgements* section of the spec.  This is
even more trivial than the ridiculous ASCII ref issue that was allowed
to be raised.

Chairs, I apologize, but you're not automatic issue-handling machines.
 Exercise some judgement, please, and don't waste the valuable time of
the many members of the working group with such inconsequential
process-mongering.  No matter how this issue is resolved, precisely
*zero* people will be helped by it.
