As I'm not a member of the w3c, I have no idea what would be better - if you were to create a new proposal and try to get the w3c's attention in that way, or having the conversation here. I personally am open to either way and will follow the conversation wherever it is (if you make a new issue, please link it here so I can follow it!)

In any case, no matter what happens, may I suggest something that _may_ help your proposal a bit? (again, as I'm not a member of the w3c, I can't guarantee anything, but I hope that my suggestion can help your ideas progress!)

Perhaps you could follow the template I used for my first post here for your proposal?  If you were to do it that way, it makes it easier for **anyone** to drop in, take a look at what's being proposed, and comment on it - even if they haven't been following the conversation so far. I think that would increase the chances that it gets discussed.

It may help to take some time on it too - write it down, wait some time, and proof read it / clean it up. I did that 3/4 times on each of my proposals and I find it has really helped me cement what I'm proposing and what's just superfluous and can be removed. 

Maybe you could even include another section that talks about how it may affect websites that (for better or worse) expect the current behavior of `vh` and if they would need to be changed in any way - it's always good to be thinking about how a proposal may affect existing websites, even if you're correcting a bug. (see Javascript's `typeof null` for reference haha)

Anyway, again, you don't need to do that. I just have found some measure of success by doing it that way and I would love to understand your proposal - and see it get commented on!

Sidenote: regarding my tweets you referenced earlier, it's unfortunate that you came away with the impression that I was directing them at you. For clarity, I wasn't, though the timing of it may have appeared that way. In any case, I hope we can move on from that discussion and just focus on the proposal here. 🙂
