The Working Group should "consider" such issues, but if there is no
"patch", then it should only action someone to make one, and decide
about such a patch when it is available. It's quite normal that some-
one identifies a problem, but does not care at all how it should be
resolved, or how the modified requirements should be phrased, or in
fact they might not be able to come up with text that the group will
approve, and filling such gaps is why we have the Working Group; but
it would have to "consider" such issues to do that.

(I suppose David would largely agree with that, but the above might
be read by a casual reader that they need to send in patches if they
don't want their issue to be ignored by the Working Group, and that
would be a bad thing.)
