Current status:

1) A change has been made to the WHATWG draft that appears to address 
the core of my objection:

http://lists.whatwg.org/pipermail/commit-watchers-whatwg.org/2010/004263.html

I had a brief conversation with Paul last night, and he was inclined to 
agree.  We are continuing to review this.

2) Shelley has raised a Formal Objection:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-comments/2010Jun/0005.html

Clearly this needs to be resolved at some point, and certainly before 
the document reaches PR, but what precisely is the need to resolve this 
now, and prior to publication of another heartbeat draft?
