I did not suggest that you contradicted what Ian said.

That being said, I do believe that you embellished.

My claim was that if Ian does not want feedback, then he shouldn't 
publish it inside the HTML5 draft itself.  This statement had nothing to 
do with any "complex question" other than whether or not feedback was 
desired at this point.

Beyond that, there is an uncomfortable split between the WHATWG and the 
W3C.  Bringing that non-technical subject up in the context of 
public-html is frankly non-productive.

I happen to believe that the WHATWG and W3C can cooperate.  If and when 
this material is deemed ready to receive feedback, I will promise to 
assist in finding the venue at the W3C that maximizes the amount of 
technical review this document receives.
