I don't see how it relates to the issue here...

I'm not sure it's mandatory (I think it is for other stages of a spec's 
life) but anyway it's much better that all comments go to a list.

Yes. In the charmod case the issue, both in plain text and XML, was 
sent to the list. What I suggest is to send the XML version to you 
only. I never thought we would not send the issue to the list.

I strongly disagree with this idea. I know how people would react, and 
that is "so what, another reminder". The form is here to provide an 
easy way to send a good, accurate and precise comment to the list, not 
to replace the list completely as a channel for comments. What you 
suggest would kill the discussions about the comments, which is one of 
the main goals of the list.

You may be too optimistic about the amount of comments we'll get ;)

Yes, but monday is the start of the last call period, and I need some 
time to code whatever decision we make...
