This proposal got some support and if there was any objections, I missed 
it.  This Call for Consensus is intended to determine if there are 
indeed any objections.

So to be clear: the proposal is to create another mailing list and to 
redirect the types of discussions described above to that mailing list. 
  If this call passes, the name of that mailing list would be determined 
by W3C staff, though constructive suggestions are welcome.

If you have any comments or concerns about this CfC, please respond by 
Wednesday, November 13th, 2012. Positive response is welcome and silence 
will be considered as agreement with the proposal.

If your comment is an objection, please clearly state that.
