That would be great!  Thanks!

Yeah.  I understand your request.  The reason the working group is 
copied on incoming requests is to that the working group can discuss 
them between meetings, and so that the responses can be automatically 
tracked by the system (assuming, of course, that the responders remember 
to copy the system).

A shortcoming of the system we use is that there is not a great way to 
track that you want www-html-editor copied on correspondence about the 
issue.  From a process perspective, we really want to send responses 
directly to the submitter so that we are certain they have a good chance 
of being seen.  I will see what I can do about modifying the tracking 
system to add an automatic CC if the original submission was also CC'd.  
Do you think that would satisfy your request?
