This has been updated. Please re-add the Change Proposal
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/ChangeProposals/ImgElement20090126
to the Change Proposal Status Table for HTML ISSUE-31, I believe
Maciej had previously removed it [1].

If there is anything else I need to do to make it worthy of
consideration, please let me know.

Thank you.

Kindest Regards,
Laura
