I'm wondering whether people take their discussions to the WhatWG over the
W3C email lists, because people don't ask questions such as, who is the
customer, and what are the use cases, that are asked here.

Yet these are just as critical to understanding whether a solution is
appropriate or not, as arguing about which element's to scrub, or not.

But thanks for the link to the rather broad result. I probably won't dig
through the result, especially when I noticed that this email thread is
showing up.

If someone has links to specific email threads at the WhatWG that are very
relevant, and concise, related to this discussion, I'd really appreciate
receiving those.
