It is difficult to establish that a given change is "uncontroversial" if there
is no prior discussion or even simple notification to the Working Group prior
to the change being made.

I would consider a bug report to be sufficient for notification provided that
sufficient opportunity was provided for people to comment on the bug.  As an
example of an avoidable problem, bug 11984 is an example of where a bug was
opened and resolved on the same day (in fact, within 90 minutes) resulting in
the chairs needing to involve a rather heavyweight multi-day process to cause a
revert.
