Via other bugs the text now makes clear that any feature addition should
preferably be preflighted with the WG, and any feature addition (even where its
feature status is debatable) could be subject to a revert request. Anything
that no one objects to will not get reverted.

In that sense, any change is ok as long as it proves uncontroversial ex post
facto (no one asks to revert), but we strongly recommend that anything which is
even arguably a feature addition, even to document longstanding legacy APIs,
should be suitably preflighted with the group. Not just in a letter-of-the-law
way but a bug or mailing list post with fair opportunity for comments.

I think this is now clear enough from the rest of the policy. If my co-chairs
agree, my resolution would be to simply remove the remaining FIXME. I'd also
like to give Aryeh a chance to comment on whether his concerns are addressed
now.
