Thanks for the clarification. I do hear you and think you have valid 
points, but doesn't it seem to you that having two parallel groups 
discussing the same issues where not everyone is involved in all 
discussions somewhat troubling?  Wouldn't not be possible to merge the 
two activities, at least until the W3C proves that it won't make 
progress (hopefully not, but that is your concern, right?) 

Anyway, I've voiced my concern now and won't belabor it beyond this last 
email.
