The proper way to do that would be a separate bug.  Which in this case 
would have been entirely unnecessary as the problem does not exist in 
the current spec.

As currently worded it appear that the "User Agents are encouraged" 
paragraph would only need to be added if the Editors chose to apply the 
change in the manner that you have proscribed.

The quickest, easiest, and frankly best, way to address this is to 
remove the unnecessary, confusing, and frankly irrelevant paragraph that 
starts with the words "One way to apply the above changes".
