All that closed means in this case is that this is not an appropriate 
use of the issue tracker at this time.  Another way of putting it is 
that it is that ISSUE-98 is out of order.  Nothing more.  Nothing less.

I am aware of the two documents that are referred to ISSUE-98.  I am 
aware of Ian's continued interest in authoring and participating in the 
continued development of canvas.  The other thing I do know is that 
neither Eliot nor Doug have submitted their document for consideration. 
  It is a doodle.  It is incomplete.

What I am not aware of is either Eliot's or Doug's intent.

Perhaps Ian's split meets their needs.  Perhaps they would be willing to 
co-edit a document with Ian.  Perhaps they wish to pursue a separate 
draft.  Perhaps they are still evaluating their options.  Perhaps their 
priorities have changed.  Perhaps somebody else wishes to pick up this 
ball and carry it forward.

I don't know.  Nor do I care to speculate.  In fact, one thing I 
definitely do NOT want to do is to put either of them, or anybody who 
hasn't volunteered and made a commitment, on the spot.

Hence, I support the status of CLOSED for ISSUE-98.

There are paths forward.  And they all start with identifying specific 
deficiencies, and expressing them in terms of bug reports.  Issue-98 is 
completely lacking in such.
