At this point, the chairs are asking the WG if anyone else wants to see 
this reverted.  If you have a technical (i.e., non-procedural) objection 
to the approach taken by the resolution to this bug, we are asking you 
to indicate such by adding a brief comment to bug itself.

Possible outcomes include:

*) the editor voluntarily agreeing to revert the change and REOPEN the
    bug based on the technical feedback.

*) the chairs determining that this change is controversial and likely
    to reduce rather than increase consensus and/or that the change
    represents a new features that should not be added after the cutoff
    as it doesn't meet the bar of "particularly exceptional
    circumstances".

*) neither the editor nor the chairs taking action on this bug at this
    time; in which case we will likely need to reassess impact of this
    change on issue-145.

If you do have input to provide, we would appreciate it being given
before the time of next week's telecon, as this will be a topic of
discussion to be covered in the "Other Business" item on the agenda.
