Indeed. Also, it seems that if an editor or editors are going to
successfully assemble the HTML 5 spec based on the research and input
of the HTML WG then those editors will necessarily have to understand
the issues of and, more importantly, the mindset of this WG as a
whole.

Editors from highly technical non-Web backgrounds, for instance, will
likely not make the decisions that best represent the WG as a whole.
Obviously this can be screened for by anyone (including the Chairs),
but might be a smoother process if proposals and objections are aired
publicly, at least after someone is nominated as a candidate for
editor.

Thanks.
