What I'm asking is that you follow the Decision Policy guidelines for  
what should go in a bug: <http://dev.w3.org/html5/decision-policy/decision-policy.html#bugzilla-bug 
 >. I don't think bug 7034 satisfies any of those four bullet points  
in its current state.

And I'm letting you know that if the bug report doesn't meet those  
guidelines, the likely result is NEEDSINFO, and that I at least would  
agree with that resolution. If you're not interested in doing anything  
further to avoid that outcome, then I am satisfied to leave the bug  
alone.

Regards,
Maciej
