The CSR is already approved and changing specification at this point will require to roll it back to draft and then going trough the approval process again which in turn risks this change not to make it in the upcoming LTS release. I would prefer to integrate it and create a follow-up bug to clarify the wording where we can discuss the matter and - if it is worth it - to submit a new CSR to amend the specification.
