This is very helpful, thank you.  As a heads up to anyone who is 
interested in seeing where this stands, I suggest you do take the trouble 
to read Ian's note in detail, and in particular to follow his link to the 
page at which poll results are being gathered.

Yeah sorry about that, I didn't realise the bug that I had marked it as a 
duplicate of hadn't gotten the boilerplate.

The text you were _supposed_ to get is:

-----8<-----
EDITOR'S RESPONSE: This is an Editor's Response to your comment. If you 
are satisfied with this response, please change the state of this bug to 
CLOSED. If you have additional information and would like the editor to 
reconsider, please reopen this bug. If you would like to escalate the 
issue to the full HTML Working Group, please add the TrackerRequest 
keyword to this bug, and suggest title and text for the tracker issue; or 
you may create a tracker issue yourself, if you are able to do so. For 
more details, see this document:
   http://dev.w3.org/html5/decision-policy/decision-policy.html
-----8<-----

...and the presence of the TrackerIssue keyword means that the escalation 
process is ongoing. In fact, as others have noted, the process has 
progressed to near the state of completion:

   http://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/40318/issue-76-objection-poll/
   http://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/40318/issue-76-objection-poll/results

(This is why I closed the bug; it is counter to our process for there to 
be an open bug requesting the same as an open tracker issue.)

A working group chair decision on the matter is expected probably before 
the end of the year (the poll ends next Thursday, and the chairs meet on 
Tuesdays to discuss matters such as this, so one could expect a decision 
to be announced by the 23rd).

HTH,
