It's not clear to me what "this wasn't an issue" means. I'm guessing
that means that what we have in the spec is OK and it's not necessary
to discuss how to handle negotiation failure and just let
implementations figure it out. That's fine by me.

I observe that as per
Firefox appears to hard fail. And my inclination is to enforce the
same policy in Chromium. This will affect other implementations that
wish to interoperate with these browsers.

As for the meta-procedural commentary, I disagree that all thoughts
must be fully baked before discussing in the open. But I've no
interest in debating that decision, so if the working group does not
want me/Chromium to share half-baked thoughts on stuff, that's fine
and I will stop sharing them. Sorry for the noise.
