Just so we are clear, what you are proposing is doing this in which 
version of HTML?

Prior history on this:

http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/7
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2009Dec/0286.html

I don't believe that this issue needs to be reopened if you are talking 
about 5.1, but would be if we are talking about 5.0.

Either way (5.0 or 5.1), I would suggest informally evaluating whether 
or not such a change could conceivably meet the defined exit criteria[1] 
in the time frame specified before proceeding.
