I think if a topic hasn't gotten significant email discussion, and may  
be controversial, then it's a good idea to make sure the mailing list  
gets some notice. But as far as I can tell, Shelley has done this for  
all of her potentially controversial bugs, by tagging them NE. For  
whatever reason, this one did not seem to draw any attention, though  
many of Shelley's other bugs have drawn extensive comments.

In addition to the Issue process, another option when you disagree  
with the outcome is to reopen a bug with new information for the  
editor. That's happening in the case of <details>. So please comment  
in the bug if you feel strongly. I suspect this one is going to the  
issue tracker one way or another though.
