Speaking in my official position as one of the current co-chairs for the
group, and after consultation with Chris Wilson, we would like to now
reduce the scope this moratorium to only apply to the public-html mailing
list.  Which means that effective immediately, those that wish to continue
this discussion are welcome to do so on www-archive@w3.org.
