I said this in the telecon a few hours ago, and I will say it again: by 
any chance is this opposition going to take any actionable form, such as 
a bug report?

If you want this section removed, a bug report is the right next step.

If you expect this to be escalated, a bug report is still the right next 

If if you wish to prevent a heartbeat document going to go out with the 
existing WebSRT section in it, a bug report is still the right next step.

If you want the decision policy to be changed to prevent such additions 
from occurring without prior discussion, I will maintain that writing a 
bug report on this specific WebSRT section still the right next step.  I 
find that it is much more effective to discuss the need for change based 
on tangible problems that actually occurred rather than hypothetical 
worst case scenarios.
