hi Silvia,

I have no issue with the current process for bug fixes etc.

 5.1 already includes features that do not meet these criteria, I would
like to have a clear process for how these features are added regardless of
their origin.

This can and does occur in the w3c space as well. So I take it new features
can be added to the 5.1 working draft by filing bugs and discussion in the
working group.

regards
Steve
