Grumble. OK I think then the next step is that I ask the chairs to
make a call for consensus for publishing that as a FPWD from this WG

You mean a new separate bug in bugzilla separate for the one that's
currently linked to the tracker issue (and separate from the original
one that was against the whatwg spec before all the bugs were
cloned/split?) That seems highly suboptimal for anyone reporting a bug,
surely the bug should only need be reported once, and it is the
editors' decision at what version the fix can be handled 5.0 5.x (or
never).
