With respect to the RfR for D3E test cases,  only four of the submitted test cases are affected by the objections cited for not publishing D3E as a CR.  Alex could withdraw those 4 from the RfR so that the working group can continue to make progress on the test cases that are not in contention.

Is that an acceptable solution?

Given the objections to this CfC, a publication request for CR will not 
be submitted. The group's next step will be to"endeavor to resolve" the 
objections as described in the Process Document [Consensus].

Ms2ger enumerates 3 points in his objection [Objection-1]. My 
expectation is that those supporting the CfC will respond to these 
points and both the D3E supporters and DOM4 supporters will work toward 
achieving a mutually agreeable position on them.

In Marcos Caceres' objection [Objection-2], he asserts some of the 
overlaps and redundancies between D3E and DOM4 are confusing and 
requests the D3E spec clarify its relationship to DOM4. I encourage 
Marcos to work with the Editors on text and/or changes that clarify the 

This CfC created two additional points of contention:

1. Request by Alex Kuang to Review D3E test suites [RfR-D3E]

2. Request by Alex Kuang to add EventException support to WebApps' 
testharness.js [EventException]

Until we have reached consensus on the spec issues, I propose these two 
requests be postponed and I will reply to those e-mail threads separately.

I added a 16:00-17:00 agenda topic for D3E and DOM4 for WebApp's f2f 
meeting on Monday October 31 [Oct31-Agenda]
