---------------------------------
Publish draft with warnings?
----
Do you support publishing this Editor's draft (i.e., with 
additional warnings, also a.k.a. Manu's draft) as a Working Draft at this
time?
In order to provide more useful feedback regarding which warning text
should not be considered controversial and thus, should be removed,
please follow the suggestions outlined in this email.


 * ( ) Yes
 * (x) No

My previous comments
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2009Aug/0447.html

I concur with these comments from James Graham
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2009Aug/0563.html

I also concur with Henri's comments about the content of the warnings
themselves.




---------------------------------
What to publish?
----
Given that these documents differ only in the presence or absence of
warnings, how would you like the results of the poll to be interpreted?



 * ( ) I would prefer to publish all Editor's Drafts that have majority
approval as Working Drafts.
 * (x) I prefer to publish only the one Editor's Draft receiving the most
votes as a Working Draft.

Comments (or a URI pointing to your comments): 
Publishing two separate drafts that are almost identical except for a few
editorial comments about the stability of some random "controversial"
sections does not solve any real problems, and will only serve to create
confusion among the wider community.

Even though I do not support the draft with extra warnings, I would rather
see that one published by itself than have both needlessly published
together.
