As I understand it, there are not plans to further modify Appendix E 
(beyond what's already in the current WD) in response to Issue 60, which 
personally I now consider closed, despite it not going as far as I would 
have liked.

[In particular, I think that your objections concern the use of the word 
"descendants".  ("Atomicity" is discussed in 9.9.1, and so does impact 
Appendix E which is not a replacement for the whole of 9.9.1 but merely 
a replacement for the list of painting layers.)  The WG rejected the 
proposal to clarify this word (eg by using my term "dependants").  It 
sounds like you wish them to reconsider.]
