This proposal contains all of the necessary sections, and therefore 
could proceed to a survey at this time.

My read is that this email contains ten objections.

So, the current status (anybody feel free to correct me if I have this 
wrong) is that we have two active proposals:

http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/ChangeProposals/AllowAriaReferHidden
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/Correct_Hidden_Attribute_Section_v3

While it is clear that the TF prefers _v3 over AllowAriaReferHidden it 
is not yet clear to me that there exists strong objections to 
AllowAriaReferHidden.

So before proceeding, can I get confirmation that:

1) Benjamin: that you do not object to AllowAriaReferHidden?

Should it be the case that you object to both proposals and do not bring 
forward a proposal of your own, then your input is likely to get discounted.

2) A11y TF: you (collectively) do not intend to update _v3 further based 
on these objections AND you do intend to put forward objections to 
AllowAriaReferHidden that you believe to be stronger than the ones that 
Benjamin has put forward against _v3.

If these objections are not forthcoming, then we will assume that people 
can live with AllowAriaReferHidden, and will proceed with at CfC.
