As editor for the WHATWG spec, I always send feedback to all e-mail on the 
relevant WHATWG threads, and do indeed mention out-of-band feedback.

If I am to be editor for the HTML WG as well, I would expect to either 
cross-post those e-mails to this list, and/or have volunteers on this list 
to coordinate the feedback whose responsibility it would be to keep track 
of the reasoning behind changes.
