I'm with Anne on this. Please reply to the e-mails before convening a 
telecon. It is very difficult to carefully consider feedback in the 
context of a telecon.

The problem isn't "back-and-forth" denoting "many differing opinions", the 
problem is that we don't know what Microsoft's opinion _is_.

Telecons are by their nature much less open, and minutes are almost 
uniformly so poor that it is hard to impossible to get precise technical 
details out of telecons. A telecon would not be appropriate at this point.
