Current status: the original proposal was withdrawn:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2011Aug/0230.html

We have received an updated Change Proposal:

http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/User:Eoconnor/ISSUE-133

At the current time, the chairs are issuing a call for consensus on this 
proposal.  If anybody would like to raise an objection during
this time, we will require them to accompany their objection with a
concrete and complete change proposal.

If no objections are raised to this call by November 10th 2011, we will
direct the editor to make the proposed change, and will only consider
subsequently reopening this issue based on new information and a
complete change proposal based on the spec's contents as it exists after 
this change is applied.
