I'm curious ... there's a lot of advocay about groves here on XML-DEV, but I
don't see anyone (besides Nils Klarlund) who posts here speaking their piece
on the InfoSet comments list

Forgive my monumental naivete, but are the Groves advocates just so totally
cynical about the W3C process that they don't think it's worthwhile to raise
points such as the one Eliot Kimber makes to the InfoSet people, do you do
so privately and get the same non-response that Nils seems to have gotten,
do you not care what the InfoSet WG recommends, or what?
