Hi John,

Given that the PR transition criteria include the demonstration of at 
least two interoperable implementations of the specification, it is 
important that we spend some time at the f2f discussing implementation 
issues, also with the goal of producing/collecting test cases.

I am not aware of any substantial discussions that haven taken place 
between browser makes that should have taken place on this mailing list.
Given that you imply a "historical pattern", do you have any specific 
issues in mind where this has been a problem in the past?
