Paul: thank you for doublechecking with us.  On our call today, we reviewed 
  the "state of play" on your ISSUE-41.  As we understand it, the specific 
purpose of your note was to alert the community that change proposals that 
lacked an advocate would be dropped, likely as of tomorrow.

During our discussion, those on the TAG who have followed the details 
pointed out that:

1) Your change proposals 1, 2, and 4 all originate from the same author 
(Rob Ennals), who believes now that 4 is a better solution than 1 or 2.

2) Proposals 3, 4, and 5 all do have advocates.

That being the case, the TAG has asked me to express to you our 
satisfaction with what we presume to be your plan, I.e. to retain as active 
for discussion change proposals 3, 4 and 5.

The TAG remains very interested in the extensibility architecture for HTML 
5, and we may comment further in the future as appropriate.  Thank you very 
much.

Noah

>> The HTML WG Chairs are evaluating the status of the current five different ISSUE-41: extensibility change proposals.  See:
>> http://dev.w3.org/html5/status/issue-status.html#ISSUE-041  
>>
>> Before the Chairs issue a survey on this issue we would like to ensure that there is AT LEAST one "advocate" in the WG for each of the five change proposals.  If there are NO advocates for one or more of the proposals then the Chairs propose to drop that change proposal from the eventual WG survey on Issue-41 since we believe that will greatly simplify the survey and the results processing.

>> Please reply to this email if you are an advocate FOR one or more of the following change proposals with a clear indication of which proposal(s) you support:

>> 1. Change Proposal: "Proposal X", Registered XML-Style Namespace Prefixes
