We have multiple requests to revert this change, and they included
plausible rationale.  Therefore:

1) We ask for a revert of this change to be completed no later than the
end of day on the 6th of May.  If this revert is not complete by that
time, we will instruct W3C staff to make this change.

2) We ask that patches for bug 11828 be posted for discussion prior to
anything further being committed in response to this bug.  We encourage
those that wish to participate in this discussion to add themselves to
the cc list for the following bug:

http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=11828

3) None of these actions affect the status of ISSUE-164, which will be 
resolved during Last Call according to the procedures defined by the 
decision process.
