In response to the "Do you support publication?" question,
you chose "Only after critical issues are addressed"

Perhaps the question wasn't clear, but it would help
a lot if you would clarify *which issues* you consider
sufficiently critical that the document should not be published
before they are addressed.

I suppose Roger Johansson was clear enough; he
gave a "Strongly Disagree" answer to "Solve Real Problems".
Likewise, Laura Carlson chose "Strongly Disagree"
regarding "Avoid Needless Complexity". Due to the limitations
of the WBS technology, it would help me if you could
re-iterate those under the "Do you support publication?" question.

Joshue O Connor, your comment under "do you support
publication" doesn't seem to correspond to the "Strongly
Disagree" answer you gave above. You
say "An explicit commitment to accessibility needs to be included."
but you don't refer to any text that would address your concern.
If at all possible, please do.

Jason White writes "Let's find out which principles are the most
controversial within the working group, see whether those can be
addressed first, and then publish the results for community review
within a reasonable period of time."

Of course, the purpose of the survey is to find out the level
of support for the principles. But we're beyond any reasonable
time for publishing something for review by the community,
according to W3C process.

We'll do what we can to make the status of each principle clear
when we publish the document for review. The purpose
of the "Only after critical issues are addressed" option
is for you to indicate specific things that you, personally,
think are critical to fix before we publish the document for review.
