Richard,

You are certainly welcome do one or more of the following:

a) Withdraw or modify your CaretSelectionRevised proposal from/for 
consideration for HTML5.

b) Work with Frank and others to see if they will withdraw or modify 
their proposal

c) Submit an alternate proposal indicating that the spec should remain 
as is and that the Reading_text_in_canvas proposal should be deferred to 
HTML.next

d) Submit a Formal Objection

Meanwhile, these parallel options are available to all working group 
members.  In particular, until or unless the Reading_text_in_canvas 
proposal is withdrawn, it is still eligible for consideration.

Therefore, we encourage you to first work with Frank and others.

Should that not satisfy you, the way to ask the chairs to move issue 131 
to HTML.next is to withdraw CaretSelectionRevised, and write up a Change 
Proposal to defer the feature.  If it helps, you can base your proposal 
off of Ted's proposal for issue 195[1].

If you do so, and Reading_text_in_canvas is not withdrawn, we will 
proceed to a survey and all WG members will be given an opportunity to 
state their objections to each of the available proposals there.  And a 
decision will be produced based on the objections expressed there.

None of the actions described above would prevent you from submitting 
CaretSelectionRevised for consideration for HTML.next, or for submitting 
a Formal Objection to the decision on Issue 205.

- Sam Ruby
