My preference would be to treat this the same as an HTML feature request from the CSS WG, the Web Apps WG, the I18N WG or the Web & TV IG. We don't usually require such requests to come in the form of a published spec with final IPR commitments. This particular proposal has not been published in any form yet, FSA or otherwise.

I understand the potential concern about circumventing the IPR policy, but I believe in this case, the actual contributors to this proposal are members of the HTML WG.
