Having a serious debate on technical facts about a specification is useful it occurs at various level within W3C, in the working groups, outside of the group like in xml-dev, and basically this refinement process is the best gard against flawed design. Taking into account public feedback is part of our process, all public drafts have public, archived mailing-lists for that exact purpose, and the Working Group has to provide feedback on points raised there. If they don't, they are at fault. I guess Ann and other members of that working group did explain the reasons of their technical decision. W3C staff didn't ignore the issues raised. Members of the Working Group didn't either, and I guess a large number of people generally involved in the XML activity took part ot the debate so the awareness is high withing the W3C member organization. A specification which would get fairly negative feedback from member won't get Recommendation status. The feedback loop exists, and from what I see, it is active.
