I'm happy to push for the comm team to pay attention to discussions in a  
public forum (if they aren't), and this forum seems a reasonable choice to  

The relationship with WHATWG occupies a certain amount of the AB's  
attention from time to time. I think how much depends (and should) on the  
expectation of a useful outcome for investing time.

Rather than the AB getting involved in the specifics of how a couple of  
groups acknowledge contribution to their work it seems to me that a  
discussion with the attention of the comms team, who control the rules for  
publications, is a more effective use of everyone's time.

(I say this as chair of this CG, a member of the AB, and co-chair of one  
of the group where this issue really matters).

Of course I'm open to being convinced otherwise - either this group or the  
rest of the AB might simply over-rule me. It happens, often to the general  
benefit of the world...
