The request was to revert the one specific change.  By reverting all 
changes since that point, you have made the spec insistent with the 
resolutions to the following bugs:

13398 13983 13986 14037 14427 14427 14474 14502 14526 14537 14570 14572 
14572 14574 14577 14586 14586 14592 14595 14597 14628 14629 14631 14637 
14649 14650 14651 14654 14676

Please restore those changes.

The Chairs also plan to add the TrackerRequest keyword to the bug so that it immediately becomes a Last Call WG issue(s).  Therefore we direct the HTML5 Editor to NOT process this bug further until the WG reaches a decision on the WG issue(s).  We note as well that this topic was on the agenda of today's WG F2F meeting [3].
