I agree. However, under section 7.2 of the W3C Process Document
(http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Process/) the working group is required, at this
stage, formally to address all comments received. Under section 3.3.3, the
working group should maintain a record of its decisions and the substantive
responses made to reviewers' comments.

Instead of reading meeting minutes, I plan to wait until the substantive
responses start coming out in order to keep track of how the document is
developing. Of course, I'll be paying particular attention to the substantive
responses to issues that I raised, and I am sure that other Last Call
reviewers will be doing the same.

I am not denying that meeting minutes could be better kept, only suggesting
that they are not a substitute for the substantive responses that the working
group will give, which should include technical rationale for each decision.
