Publication will enable wider discussion - particularly wrt the issues
you have raised. Not publishing it is tantamount to saying "I OBJECT
TO PROGRESS!". If you are correct, more people will see it and the
proposal will be shot down. Otherwise, other opinions will flourish
that may sway your position (or a new perspective will emerge all
together). In any case, calling for a spec not to be published, no
matter how bad it is, is not the right way to do this. Publishing a
spec is just a formality which can lead to discussion.
