Minutes of the discussion, to help jog your memory:  
http://www.w3.org/2013/04/25-webapps-minutes.html#item04 (I apoogise for  
not linking those from the original CfC message).

Yes.

No, the idea is that we all agree on this.

Comment on the spec and say "that's terrible, it should be...". If  
necessary as formal objections to moving forward. As a practical matter I  
think nearly all of sysapps members are also represented in webapps. So I  
would be surprised if there were a real issue.

No, there is a handful of frustrating overhead to do that which, if it is  
as unnecessary as it seems in this case, the people who would have to deal  
with it (chairs, editors, staff contacts) preferred to avoid.
