It certainly seems entirely reasonable not to change the title now (i.e.
before the FPWD), given indeed lack of consensus on the topic.

I tend to think that it’s probably better to work separately on the read
and write access (independently on the questions of which WG the work
happens), since read-access seems to be closer to be ready and
well-understood than writing — I guess that’s really what needs to be
discussed now rather than the title of the spec which really is only a
corollary issue.
