One last comment on this thread that and then I'm done with it. All of  
you should try to focus on substantive issues. We may all have  
disagreements with one WG member or another. The point is not to  
simply badger the WG member with repeated emails greater and greater  
in length. The proper behavior for WG members is to engage the  
substance of the proposals. Discuss possible pitfalls for users in  
addressing these issues. Bring up what confusion authors may face with  
various elements and attributes and attribute values. Outline the  
difficulties you can foresee in implementing such solutions or even  
addressing the problems at all in any way. But please stop going on  
and on about the issue-tracker and how you don't like these issues  
included in the issue-tracker.

I will happily reply to any such messages. I will make changes to the  
wiki pages at others request or in response to potential problems.  
Others too are welcome to make constructive edits to these wiki pages  
to make the problem statements clearer, the proposed solutions better  
and the tracking of discussion more complete. No one is helping the WG  
by continuing this fruitless dialog.

Take care,
Rob
