Al said "your authority chain". I assumed he was referring to my authority 
chain, that is, the authorities I look to in editing the spec (of which 
there are none, we use research, etc). The working group naturally has its 
own processes beyond that, my edits are merely the first step along that 
chain. I wasn't referring to that at all, and I doubt Al was, since the 
topic at hand was his disagreeing with my editing decisions, not the 
working group's final decisions.
