We have two requests to revert the change attempting to implement the ISSUE-129 decision, specifically, <http://html5.org/tools/web-apps-tracker?from=5980&to=5981>. There seems to be ongoing debate about the correct changes to make. Given the two requests and the ongoing controversy, we are inclined to grant the revert request. At the same time, because this is a WG decision, it is necessary to ultimately make a change to implement the decision.


1) We request timely revert of revision 5981 as a temporary measure: <http://html5.org/tools/web-apps-tracker?from=5980&to=5981>
2) We ask that any further approaches to applying this decision should be posted to the WG first for review; either full spec text or a diff posted to the WG would be sufficient.
3) If there are inconsistencies or unintended consequences that go beyond matters of interpreting the decision, we request that anyone identifying such should file bugs.
