aloha!

the review of materials on the ESW wiki in HTML topic space is 
severely hampered by the lack of "discussion" pages for each 
wiki page -- without which, the only way to engage in "discussion"
via the wiki is to directly edit a wiki page, which can completely 
distort the original intention of the page; a simple example is the 
wiki page located at:

http://esw.w3.org/topic/HTML/Action54AltAttribute

which reflects a proposal submitted to the working group; discussion 
of this proposal on the ESW wiki SHOULD be facilitated through an 
associated discussion page, so that comments upon the content of
a particular wiki article can be addressed without either materially
changing the content of a wiki article or causing article bloat as
more careful commentators append their proposals to a wiki article
at the end of the original article, which often means repeating a 
lot of text...

is this something which can be corrected in a timely manner?  is it 
even possible with MoinMoin?
