The proposal, or the vote text?

Do you think this would be ok?:

   What do you think HTML5 should say about making complex data tables
   more accessible?

    ( ) HTML5 should encourage authors to use the summary="" attribute
        that was introduced in HTML4.

    ( ) The text currently in the HTML5 spec is fine.
        http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/tabular-data.html#table-descriptions

    ( ) The text currently in the HTML5 spec is mostly fine, but should in 
        addition make summary="" conforming for authors (without 
        encouraging it over other options).
        http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/tabular-data.html#table-descriptions

    ( ) Something else, described below.

   If you said "something else", please describe it here: [_____]

I think if we have these options we should definitely also include three 
little 150-word essays that argue each case, so that people who aren't 
familiar with the issues can read up on them before voting.
