Daniel, I can guarantee you that even being W3C staff, it is almost  
impossible to follow everything.

* dealing with logistics issues,
* sorting administrative tasks due to invited experts,
* trying to keep up with technical issues to just know what people  
are talking about.


I usually leave my IRC client open during the week-end, I haven't  
done it this week-end to avoid questions when I have my private life  
time, which people seems to forget as well.

IMHO, I have the feeling, that one way of reducing the volume of  
discussions is to assign specific tasks for each item.

An example, I have seen people complaining that the abbr vs acronym  
issue has [been debated ad nauseam][1]. Then a document should  
collect all the arguments, examples, test cases and be published  
somewhere on W3C Web site. Next time, end of the discussion for the  
proponents by slapping a URI in your face. I wonder if Jukka would  
accept to give [his document][2] and/or someone in this group would  
accept to do this work.
