[Bug 13423] Remove the Editing APIs section. It's extremely incomplete and contradicts my editing spec on a lot of points, so it will confuse implementers.

You can't object to "proceeding", in particular, you can't object to the
opening of a bug report or even to the initial resolution proposed by an
editor, which I will note hasn't even happened yet.

You can object to a decision[1].  For that to happen, there will need to be an
initial resolution, an issue raised, an opportunity for people to prepare
change proposals, and ultimately a decision.  At a minimum, that process will
ensure that the Director has the input of the WG on the matter, including a
list of concrete proposals to chose from.

My may be able to object to the creation of a community group -- I honestly
don't know as the WG was not involved in that action.

In any case, a Formal Objection is likely to be unnecessary in this instance as
Editing APIs are called out in the charter, and therefore the topic will
undoubtedly come up.
