My message was about comments from outside the WG. You're
inside the WG.

We didn't discuss them in substance on the teleconference, but
that doesn't mean I think they're strictly editorial. I'll keep
an eye out for things that are substantive and conflict with earlier
decisions, and schedule discussion of those.

For things that the WG hasn't decided, even if they're substantive,
the editors are free to incorporate design changes.

The goal is that they're consistent. If they conflict, there's
a bug. I'm disinclined to say, as a matter of policy, where
the bug is.
