The IRC chat is public, as you demonstrated by linking to the log.  If
you prefer not to use it, or happen to miss a particular discussion,
you can always post to the mailing list/Bugzilla/etc. if you have
something to say.  On the other hand, those who prefer to get
real-time feedback on suggestions can use IRC.  Having a variety of
media available for contributors to use makes HTML 5's development
more open, not less.
