Thanks to Dan for alerting me to [1], which was posted by Sam Ruby to the 
public-html list.  From that:

-------
"At this time the chairs  would like to solicit volunteers to write Change 
Proposals.

http://www.w3.org/html/wg/tracker/issues/4
http://dev.w3.org/html5/decision-policy/decision-policy.html#escalation

If no Change Proposals are written by December 3, this issue will be 
closed without prejudice."
-------

I'm tempted to schedule this for some discussion on tomorrow's TAG call, 
but noting that Larry has sent regrets, I'm now leaning toward leaving it 
until the 19th.  Note that Henry will be chairing on the 19th, and I will 
be unavailable to do the agenda.  Anyway, if this causes any concern, let 
me know and we'll take a little time on this tomorrow after all.

I note that HTML has a separate issue 41 [2] titled 
"Decentralized-extensibility", so Sam's call presumably does not apply to 
that.  Also, as I understand the HTML WG process, Sam's statement that 
"..this issue will be closed >without prejudice<." translates as: "The 
HTML WG would really, really, appreciate getting any change proposals by 
the 3 December date, but formally, we'll reopen the issue if such requests 
come later."  So, I think the TAG should do it's best to provide input, if 
any, by the date.

Also: my unchecked recollection is that the TAG has at least informally 
decided not to provide such input, but I do not have time today to check 
the record to verify that.  Someone should probably go over past minutes 
in preparing the agenda for the 19th.  If my memory is correct, we got to 
the point where not enough TAG members were converging with Larry on a 
direction.   My memory could very well be faulty on this.
