Yes, and this is exactly the right forum to raise them in.  Thus, to address 
your last question first:

I would suggest that we hash these things out here by email and at our
meetings - I don't think it's really possible or even desirable to expand
the 8879 voting booth to try to capture all the minutiae at this point; its
purpose is, as much as anything, for us to discover where we have areas of
broad agreement, so we can focus our thinking and time away from those.
