The current status is that proposals are due April 11th, which is 
tomorrow, and that was after an extension was already granted:

   http://dev.w3.org/html5/status/issue-status.html#ISSUE-201

The chairs are aware that, in addition to chair review of proposals, 
this is scheduled to be a topic for discussion in the upcoming F2F.  I 
will state that if a proposal is received we will try to provide chair 
feedback prior to the F2F, and not schedule any surveys until after the 
F2F occurs.

If no proposals arrive, we will likely call for consensus on the 
proposal that we do have.
