The specification has been developed in the open over a long period of 
time.  The current editors were chosen as they were felt to be people 
that could respond reasonably to requests for change.

Typically, the way this process starts is with one or more bug reports:

http://dev.w3.org/html5/decision-policy/decision-policy-v3.html#basic

Some of the issues you describe appear to be editorial in nature. 
Presumably those could be addressed during CR?

Others appear to be more substantive.  Ideally, the reporting of such 
would propose changes[1] that (if adopted) would remove the need for a 
Formal Objection.
