So if we don't *need* to decide on it right now, why exactly was it ok 
to go from the original "Ogg required", to the later "Codec open, but 
discussed" to today's "Not discussed at all"?

I think we are all in agreement that a final decision will not be made 
right now; my understanding is that Shelley objects to the rules Ian 
cited to support the previous changes (and I happen to agree with that). 
And yes, whether a formal objection makes sense here is a separate question.
