This would require a new WGLC.   I recommend against it: if the advice is good, it is good, and should be followed.   If it is not good, it should be removed.   The working group seemed to think it was good advice, so why change that now?   If you have a strong reason for changing it, I would of course support that, but I haven't heard one expressed.
