FYI, over the last couple of days, Ian has made progress on 3 (10823,
10828, 11734) out of the 5 bugs that still require action. (It's no my turn
on them, but I am having trouble seeing the change he made in the HTML5
spec.) So, I am relieved to say that the door does not seem to be closed
yet, and I do think that we should be able to come to an amicable resolution
with the editor. Of course, I am still hoping to hear from him re the other
two issues (10808 and 11829).

Thanks,
Aharon
