Ah, yet another list to follow, except this one has an even lower
signal-to-noise ratio.  ;_;

Can I just go ahead and say that all of the section-removal bugs are
"major"?  I'm pretty sure I highly disagree with all of them.  I
*really* don't want to cause the WG all the additional work that
Issues do, because it's completely unnecessary and rather silly.  I'd
just like some discussion before any of them get accepted with nothing
more than the OP's assertions being heard.  If we had had a normal
discussion and Hixie still said "Eh, I'm cutting <details>.", I would
have been fine with it.  I'd still disagree with the decision, but I'd
at least know that it had been properly considered, which I do not
feel is happening right now.

I just don't like the mailing list being completely bypassed by the
tracking database.  Discussion should happen here, not in the bug
