That doesn't mean that people accept it, only that they have aired 
the objections that they have.  I am not convinced that the added 
complexity of the language is offset by sufficient benefit, given that
the feature will not be usable on the public internet for many years,
because only real enthusiasts use the latest (non IE) browsers.

Your next steps are either to become a paid up member of W3C or convince
a paid up member (probably a major browser implementor, who is prepared to
implement ahead of standardisation).  Failing that, you need to implement the
feature yourself, or otherwise fully specify it to standards quality.  Other
than that, you can assume that people with voting rights have seen the
suggestion and will decide whether or not it offers anything that previously
rejected "variables" and "macros" proposals didn't.
