We sometimes have had animated posts to other's proposals on the list.  


Please remember that 


1.	a post to the list (by anyone including the chair) does not
necessarily represent the view of the group as a whole unless it is posted
as a consensus statement. 

2.	Consensus means that    "everyone can at least live with it."  It
doesn't mean everyone thinks it great.  

3.	we adopt or agree on a lot of language because it is better than
what we had and we think we need something - not because we like the new
language that much

4.	this is all still in formulation until we get to the end 

5.	some of this is much rougher than other parts

6.	 proposals are just that and fail as often as they pass.  

*    Don't get too worried about a proposal - or map its approach to the
full group.  It is just one person

*     Just post concerns and suggestions for improvement.

7.	there are proposals and parts of the current doc that bother each
person on the Working Group (though they may be different). 

8.	No one is upset about someone posting a concern or problem with
their proposal or any proposed wording.   The Working Group members do it
themselves all the time.  not infrequently they post them against things
they wrote themselves earlier.   Just do it gently.   This is tough enough
as it is.



Thanks much
