In short, "give it a chance".  That's why various proposals are
mentioned as issues in the Working Draft.  That doesn't guarantee
at all that those proposals will be adopted, those issues simply
indicate that there were such proposals, and let others comment on
them.  If there's sufficient support for a given proposal, it might
be adopted, otherwise it will be dropped.  I would say most of them
would eventually be dropped, as the WG is in favor of making XHTML2
smaller and simpler, rather than bigger.  Your feedback matters.

P.S. Formal proposal should be sent to www-html-editor@w3.org.
  While the WG tries to monitor this mailing list, we cannot
  guarantee that every whisper on this mailing list will be
  recorded as an issue.  I appreciate your cooperation.
