aloha, josh!

my open question to/request of the chairs -- which i made sure was logged 
in IRC at today's telecon -- is as follows: when one opens an issue, it is 
not marked as "OPEN", but rather as "RAISED" -- can the chairs in their 
capacity as chairs, therefor, issue a formal statement to the effect that:

* RAISED equals PROPOSED - proposal will be discussed on list and in
  at least 1 telecon before marked as OPEN or quashed

* OPEN equals UNDER ACTIVE CONSIDERATION BY WG

* CLOSE equals Editors/Chairs consider issue resolved - note that  
  issues should be closed only after being addressed at a telecon, so 
  that if there is dissent over the resolution, it can be logged and 
  objectors should be given an opportunity to convince the chairs that 
  the issue should not be closed

or provide the rationale for not considering "RAISED" issues as "PROPOSED"?

bugzilla could then be reserved for micro-issues and detailed discussion
thereof, thus avoiding the bifurcation of feedback streams that using 
bugzilla to propose issues would cause...
