W3C liaison handling is, at best, very weak.  I have seen formal, careful, liaisons, from other groups, replied to with quite casual emails. If we want to use liaisons and the power they offer, we need to get better at writing and responding to them, alas.

The objective is to ensure that the entire set of stakeholders of the Web community, including the general public, have had adequate notice of the progress of the Working Group and thereby an opportunity to comment on the specification. Before approving transitions, the Director will consider who has been explicitly offered a reasonable opportunity to review the document, who has provided comments, the record of requests to and responses from reviewers, especially groups identified as dependencies in the charter, and seek evidence of clear communication to the general public about appropriate times and which content to review."
