That post, despite including the words "formal" and "objection" is not  
a proper Formal Objection:

- It is not an objection to a group decision - no decision had been  
made at the time, and no decision has been made to date, on publishing  
the documents in question. Or even on the status wording for that  
matter. All we have had is discussion.
- It does not cite technical arguments (or in fact any arguments).
- It was not registered with the Chairs - we were Cc'd as a courtesy  
but the objection was addressed to the Team Contacts.

W3C Process on Formal Objections:

Message that makes clear the objection was not addressed to the Chairs:

Subsequently, one of our Team Contacts replied to Larry's inquiry,  
after the Chairs and Team Contacts discussed the matter:

Since then there have been no further public posts on that thread. As  
you can see from Larry's post just now on this thread, there has been  
additional private communication on the matter, however.
