Could we cool down a bit and find a better solution? :)
From as far I remember, W3C has always been a place where discussions between good will people led to good changes. I think the intent of the group is to propose to push further the openness and transparency. There was a time W3C had most of its WG with closed door meetings and hidden minutes, with mailing-lists in Member only space, etc. etc. Things have changed and they can certainly change again.

Somehow it's quite healthy. It means it's alive.

On the other hand the thing which is a bit frustrating is always to see the new generation being very assertive at "This now sucks!" without taking into consideration that the "now" is a big change from what we had in the "past". But to the oldies of W3C (which I'm part of), let's not forget that we have been young too ;)

So let's make progress and open a bit more! *again*
And let's keep "told you so" when the current generation of "reformers" will be bashed by the new-new generation coming. (It already happened a couple of times). ^_^
