The Polyglot Note vs Recommendation Track preference poll has indicated that the HTML WG prefers to keep the Polyglot specification on the Recommendation Track by a vote of 21-19-1-1:

*** Decision of the Working Group ***

Therefore, the HTML Working Group hereby adopts the position to keep the Polyglot specification on the Recommendation track:

    http://www.w3.org/html/wg/wiki/index.php?title=PolyglotRecommendationRationale&oldid=14090 

Of the two positions before us, this one has drawn more support in the preference poll.

== Next Steps ==

Bug 12725 status will be changed to RESOLVED WONTFIX and marked as WGDecision.   
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=12725

The Editors are asked to prepare a new Polyglot Last Call Working Draft and to submit the candidate LC WD to the Chairs so that we can do a CfC on publishing the LC WD.   The Chairs propose that this Last Call be scheduled to last 6 weeks from its publication date.

== Appealing this Decision ==

If anyone strongly disagrees with the content of the decision and would like to raise a Formal Objection, they may do so at this time. Formal Objections are reviewed by the Director in consultation with the Team. Ordinarily, Formal Objections are only reviewed as part of a transition request.

== Revisiting this Issue ==

This issue can be reopened if new information is presented.
