I would add that part of the process for MathML has been done "by 
voice" (opposed to mail) because Max and I were sharing the same 
office (physical space) when I was working from France.
"Hey Karl, how we should do that?"
"hmmm let me think..."
etc.

It's a good thing and a bad thing, but it illustrate also why it's 
important to have a process, because it helps to have traceability of 
what has been done.
