However, I would like to draw your attention to the requirements defined 
for Formal Objections from the W3C Process[1]:

Based on this, I encourage you to provide substantive arguments and/or 
rationale, and to propose changes.  If you do so, I'll update the link 
on the formal objections page with your replacement.

I also encourage you to consider providing new information, as provided 
by the Change Proposal; the relevant portions cited below:
