My apologies. I thought I had e-mailed about this a few days ago, but it 
turns out I had sent my e-mail to publish-html@w3.org instead of 
public-html@w3.org! Maciej can confirm that I discussed this with him on 
IRC at the time, though.

I was about to try to write a CP for -119, when I realised I couldn't: it 
depends on the resolution to -118:

If -118 is resolved in favour of changing the definitions for up="", -119 
may either be moot or substantially changed.

If -118 is resolved in favour of removing up="", then -119's resolution 
would likely need entirely different solutions than have been considered 
so far.

If -118 is resolved in favour of the status quo, then the explanation of 
which arguments were considered convincing would significantly influence 
how a CP for -119 should be written.

Since I am rather limited in terms of what time I have available for 
writing CPs, I would rather not spend hours writing a CP that was either 
rendered moot or would subsequently have to be entirely rewritten.

Therefore, I would like to request that the chairs delay issue 119 until 
such time as issue 118 is resolved.

Apologies for my earlier mistake which meant that this request did not go 
to the list in time for the deadline.
