I'm not sure what part of the thread you are referring to.  In the 
thread, Anne says: "To be perfectly clear: I am not willing to invest my 
own time in writing specifications that cannot be forked."

We all know that W3C does not have a forking license.  We also know that 
I am trying hard to change that for HTML5 Extensions Specifications.  
This is to address a specific request from Mozilla that I do so.  What 
other resolution can I possibly provide?
