I have no objections to this decision overall.  However, just for the record:

I posted a link to IRC logs:

http://krijnhoetmer.nl/irc-logs/whatwg/20100804#l-884

An excerpt from there is:

# [23:10] <AryehGregor> Yay, more polls.
# [23:10] * AryehGregor puts off voting for a few days
# [23:11] <Hixie> this one doesn't seem so important
# [23:11] <Hixie> it's just "should the w3c spec be complete or not"

Given that the reference was to this issue, I don't see how this could
be interpreted as anything other than "if the HTMLWG removes this
feature, it will remain in the WHATWG spec, thus making the W3C spec
less complete relative to the WHATWG spec".  The evidence is arguably
not very clear, but I'd say it's quite specific.  (If this comes up
for a future issue, though, I'll be sure to get a clearer statement
from Hixie.)
