That's certainly true. Especially since it wouldn't involve being 
subscribed to "both", but being subscribed to a rather long list of 
lists: WebApps, DAP, SysApps, HTML, WHATWG, Web Audio, Web Crypto, Web 
Performance, Media Capture, www-dom, SVG, a few RDF lists, and a bunch 
more that I can't recall off the top of my head. And this doesn't even 
get into Community Groups that might at some point move on to producing 
specs.

I'd love to someone to take this on, but it's a lot to ask of anyone.

Yes, I think that would already be of great help.

That's the conclusion I reached too, and I'm agitating internally to see 
how we could make sure it happens. A lot of people have the reflex of 
thinking "Last Call" for this, but altogether too often these things are 
already implemented at LC (we're lucky when they're not already shipped 
when we start reviewing them...) so I agree that much sooner would be 
better.

I'll take that as the plan and see if we can make it happen.
