Anne, you previously agreed to this process.  If you have a problem with 
the process itself, I encourage you to write up a bug report.

I previously stated such[1].  Maciej has stated that informally he 
agrees[2].  At the present time, it seems highly likely that we will not 
entertain the NoVideoContentType content type proposal at this time.  If 
a bug is filed and the resolution of that bug is not satisfactory this 
could lead to a Last Call issue and ultimately to decision.

I see zero reason to halt progress on this issue speculatively because 
of something that might or might not happen at some point in the future.
