A reply to a private email.

Adrian objected[1] to the current name, I agreed and suggested[2] an  
alternative, David Flanagan suggests[3] "WebDOM", I explain[4] why "DOM4"  
is better, David seems[5] fine with it. After not hearing anything from  
Adrian I complain[6], and he replies[7] not giving any concrete  
suggestions other than that "DOM4" might be too unbounded given that the  
scope is unclear. I tell[8] him I clarified the scope even more. A little  
before Arthur started[9] the organization thread, where Adrian is again  
vague[10] and Arthur ends up saying[11] the scope is not clear (which I do  
not believe[12] is true as I clarified it mid-August).

Meanwhile I still have not gotten feedback on the proposed name nor how  
the "Goals" section does not address the intended scope, but I have gotten  
so much wishy washy process email I feel somewhat annoyed.
