Could you please point me to the location of the archive of these responses? 
Issues which I may have agreed with, but not raised as they had previously 
been raised may actually be already addressed, it would useful to see the 
responses.

I am sure you can respond to each reviewer with a substantially identical 
response, even that is much better than no-response at all.  If the above 
applies to any of my issues, can you please respond to me, as currently it 
appears I've just had no response at all, I do not want to suddenly have a 
Last Call, and find I'm having to re-raise and clarify issues that I thought 
were raised in a timely manner, but the WG felt had been addressed but never 
actually informed me.

I find it very disappointing that you'd decided not to previously, despite 
the strong encouragement of the WG Charter.   I am of course glad you're 
finally here though.  Perhaps we might see issues addressed in quicker than 
20 months now.

Cheers,

Jim.
