you have additional information and would like the editor to reconsider, please

Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: If I'm not mistaken, we used to have this in the spec.
Unfortunately, it's so common to make this mistake that many people don't agree
it's a mistake. I don't want to fight this fight.

I encourage you to escalate this issue by adding the TrackerRequest keyword to
it; if there are others that agree that it we should enforce good UI here, it
still has a chance to be changed.
