True, but those are deliverables of the Web Apps group. Which already has  
a number of deliverables, and a lot of mail traffic for work it has agreed  
to take on. We have already moved various kinds of work to other lists to  
reduce that traffic.

The wider audience are welcome to subscribe to a list for the group  
working on the API - but they may not want to. The fact that you add  
messages to people's inbox doesn't mean that they will read them, as we  
all know already. I do not think it is reasonable to use this list for the  
work given that it has not been accepted as a work item by the group.

Cheers
