According to the last conference call, this might also apply to this mailing 
list.
How many people are subscribed to this mailing list at the moment, and how 
many of these will be 'kicked out' when the membership policy is enforced? I 
can see that there are several motiviations for restricting the mailing list 
to W3C members / invited experts, but I also worry that we might lose many 
people that could contribute a substantial amount of constructive work and 
comments.
If the mailing list of the HCLSIG under the last charter would have been 
restricted to member-only access, I would have never become interested in 
the IG -- and would have never embarked on my steep carreer as invited 
expert and now as a regular member via DERI Galway...

Cheers,
