As the Change Proposal linked to an actual diff, the provided diff has 
considerable bearing on what was proposed.

Mistakes that can be resolved via consensus (example, the name of the
caretBlinkRate API or changing a negative number into minus one) or via 
separate bug reports.

The process we are talking about here is not materially different than 
the process by which we evaluate "null" change proposals: we seek 
objections to the actual spec text that people propose.  We have at 
times issued decisions that excluded text that people included over 
which there was no rationale and we did get an objection.

This is not the case here.
