W3C Member level discussions typically happen in other locations.  One 
such location is the Advisory Council.  If you sincerely want to effect 
change at the W3C level, public-html-admin is not the place to have that 
discussion.

We are not attempting to quash discussion or sideline it -- to the 
contrary we are trying to get the discussion to occur where it has the 
participation of all the stakeholders and can be the most effective.
