I could have chosen to close this issue by amicable consent last week:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2011Nov/0016.html

Instead, I am asking to see if there is anybody actively working on a 
new proposal, and if so, what is the expected timeframe for that 
proposal to be complete?

Whether fullscreen is new information enough isn't the right question. 
The right question is: is somebody working on a proposal?  If not, we 
should simply declare consensus and move on.  If so, all I ask is that 
they let us know.
