and i am concerned that dave hyatt is a semi-mythical being...  when 
will he speak for himself on list, let alone participate in HTML WG 
teleconferences?  you have already made it abundantly clear that 
public-html is but one of many streams you are monitoring -- should 
not your co-editor then be concentrating on monitoring the streams 
it is not possible for you to monitor effectively?

second, the issue tracker is separate from the wiki in that it takes 
fodder from the public-html emailing list AND the wiki in order 
to aid the editors and members of the WG by collating disparate data 
streams and funneling them into a single manageable issue; if you 
and dave cannot keep up with the volume of mail, and take such a dim
view of the issue tracking effort which has been designed to aid the 
editors, rather than further hinder them, perhaps we need a co-editor
who is capable of handling public-html mail and monitoring the HTML 
wiki...
