I object to carrying through with that change proposal.

I will not be writing a concrete and complete counter proposal -- because
the original bug should ever have been escalated to begin with, and in my
assessment does not merit continued attention from other members of the
group nor the W3C Team. We all have more important issues to deal with that
are genuine priorities that do actually merit our collective time and
attention, and bugs/comments like this one are a distraction from getting
work done on those real issues.

The right way to have dealt with this would have been for the original bug
to have been judged to be something best left up to editorial discretion.
