lets be honest, Jeni, the silence from most users is mainly due to the
investment in time to review the bewildering array of documents ... we know
that you must live in some interdimensional space that allows for full
absorption of the issues that matter....  the W3C is un/knowingly using the
legal chestnut of 'choking your opposition with paper' which of course gives
members the ability to silently follow their own agendas; none of this stuff
is rocket science...yet some days my head feels like it is.

Your best bet is to create an issues overview document which is written for
the 80%; better yet if written by Jeni Tennison, Michael Kay, and James
Clark. A shadow TAG cabinet....
