I agree with Sam here.

You're asking the editors to apply a revert of r6980 and then ask them
to only apply it partially. How about you keep your change proposal to
the text you want to see in the spec that pertains to issue 204, and let
the editors figure out how to apply your proposed changes? If the
editors do it the wrong way later on, you'll be able to point that out.
By the way, since you're now one of those editors, you'll be able to
blame yourself as well for not applying your own proposed change
properly :)
