At least I haven't received any requests from the chairs to bring
technical discussions, such as the one above, off of the HTML list.

Granted, your original email was an extremely long one and so I only
read a tiny fraction of it. Could be that other parts of your email
was more suited for the www-archives list. But I see no reason that
the above discussion couldn't be held on the HTML-WG list. At least as
long as everyone is civil.
