Sorry, no, this confusion is my fault.  The draft *is* public, and
this mailing is fine for discussing it.  It had not yet been
announced, however, because I wanted to give the AC a little time to
react first.  (We're still refining this process, and it can be
complicated.) 

The only thing I'd avoid on this list are points like:

Maybe I'm reading that text incorrectly, but I think it's an argument
that it would be best for the W3C to take a particular course of
action.  And *that* kind of argument really belongs in the advisory
committee (probably *after* any technical disagreements are made very
clear) because such decisions are their territory.

I'm working on a reply to your e-mail in which I try to isolate the
technical elements, as I understand them.
