The very question presumes he has not taken an active role in
the process. It presumes bad faith.

Your messages suggest that you're not familiar with Hyatt's
contributions to HTML.

Please review the record of the decision to appoint
him editor, especially the thread "Nomination for Co-Editor: Dave Hyatt"

   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2007Apr/1280.html
   http://www.w3.org/2002/09/wbs/40318/htmlbg/results#xhtml5eds

Also note that when I asked Dave Hyatt to summarize the notoriously
tricky HTML version issue, he did so in a timely fashion.

If, after reviewing that history and perhaps doing a bit
more research around the Web, you want more explanation
of why it's out of line to question the way he carries
out his work the way you did, feel free to let Chris and me know.
