Your proposals don't have to make an identical request to what is in  
the bug, but it should be reasonably related to the associated bug and  
issue. If I recall correctly, your suggestions in the bug were to  
restrict the allowed uses of the figure and aside elements, relative  
to what is stated in the spec. If you're proposing a somewhat  
different set of additional restrictions for these elements, that  
would certainly be in scope. If you (hypothetically) ended up making  
proposals that make changes to a whole different area of the spec  
(like restricting other elements besides the ones mentioned), that  
would be out of scope. If you suggested a much more radical change to  
these elements than restricting their use, like removing the elements  
entirely, or proposing new elements which would take on some of their  
use cases, that would be borderline.

If you are in doubt, and would like to check in before formally  
submitting the proposal, the chairs would be glad to privately review  
a rough draft or a summary of your intent, and give you guidance.

Thanks for checking in on these issues ahead of time. I expect it will  
help to smooth out the process.

Regards,
Maciej
