I don't find that acceptable. Everyone in the group has been
waiting for your long-delayed detailed comments with the
expectation that they would read them, evaluate them, and then
respond to them in the same way that they read and respond to any
other comments posted to the discussion.

You've yet to actually even deliver the comments to the group in
a way that makes it possible for members of the group to even read
them at all. You've missed the deadline you agreed to initially
(June 6) and also have missed the adjusted date you committed to
providing them (Tuesday or Wednesday this week at the latest).

When you do finally provide them to the group in the way that
you've been asked to (that is, without requiring members to agree
to a license in order just to read them, and in plain text or HTML
or short of that, as a PDF attachment), just dropping the comments
on the group and then saying that you have no plans to discuss
them at length during the next two weeks is not going to work.
