I am well aware, which is why I didn't suggest a finding. When the TAG 
sees an organisational issue that has a bearing on the well-being of the 
web as a whole there is however precedent for it to pick up the matter 
(e.g. the issue of "stable references" between specifications).

The eventual decision falls with the AB, AC, and Director, but since 
this issues does have a bearing on technical side, I wouldn't find it 
extracurricular for the TAG to file some manner of Amicus Brief on the 
matter.
