As we have received no acceptable counter-proposals or alternate 
proposals, the chairs are issuing a call for consensus on the proposal 
that we do have.  If anybody would like to raise an objection during 
this time, we will require them to accompany their objection with a 
concrete and complete change proposal.

If no objections are raised to this call by August 10th 2011, we will 
direct the editor to make the proposed change, and will only consider 
subsequently reopening this issue based on new information and a 
complete change proposal based on the spec's contents as it exists after 
this change is applied.
