Given this objection to amicable resolution, the Chairs will review the results of the ISSUE-128 survey [1] to determine the outcome of this issue.

I must then object.

It was not 100% true of Henri to state that there were no support for his proposal: Henri invited others to co-edit his proposal, and I added some wordings, that Henri accepted and took in (although he mailed me that he altered some of what I wrote).

I offer as concrete an complete change proposal the existing proposal by Henri, with contributions from myself. Is that enough? If it _not_ enough, what then? If I offered a new proposal, would there then be a new poll? The only things that perhaps could be given more weight in Henri's proposal, are the accessibility concerns - a permission to use <figure> inside a <p> would mean that authors would be hindered from giving it a <figcaption> label just because it appears inside a paragraph.

With regards,
