That's a good point - just offered it as a possible compromise if there
was an issue with how polls can be setup via the W3C polling software.

One additional request, as I'm attempting to find a compromise that
addresses Maciej's "controversial issues" definition concerns:

Could we have a text input area that allows voters to list which warning
text they would like to have removed or modified from the HTML5-warnings
spec if it is published?

This would allow people to vote for HTML5-warnings, excluding specific
warning text (noting that the section is not controversial). Pasting
URLs or fragment IDs, prefixed with the word "REMOVE:" would be enough.
Any warning that has 25% of the vote would be removed/modified. I can
tally the results by hand and post the (verifiable) results to the
mailing list, if necessary.

If 25% seems like too low/high of a bar to reach, some other percentage
that seems reasonable will do -- looking for guidance on this number.
