@summary in HTML5

Hi Janina,

As you may be aware, the request to include the summary attribute in
HTML5 has been declined by the editor Ian Hickson again [1]
The arguments (I consider) hinge on differences in interpretations of
the available data and the utility of the summary attribute.

I request that the PF review this issue again and correspond with the
HTML WG chairs on this issue. Initially to request that the issue
contine to be considered unresolved as I consider no level of
consensus has been reached.
