If it requires significant modification of HTTP APIs to function, or changes to HTML, yes.

Yes, but it's not about a simple post count. It's about continuing a thread where I'd already suggested making a more well-formed proposal before continuing discussion.

To be clear - we have a number of outstanding action items, and a considerable amount of work to do to get to a first implementation draft. So, I get very concerned when I see the list being distracted by things that aren't on the plan for that first implementation draft, and may never be in-scope for us.

So, from time to time I'll remind people to keep the discussion focused. This is not a slight against you - if I have a problem with your participation, I'll contact you privately first.
