I see. But usually when people send a comment to the list they usually 
don't have the id of their issue-to-be either. By the way, I was just 
thinking about the <uri> element you said was not used for issues yet. 
I have used it as "uri where the problem is", but could it be "uri of 
the message in the list", ala, http://www.w3.org/mid/foobar@hello.org ? 
Could be useful for tracking. Anyway, just an idea.

I would say IG, since that's where the discussion is supposed to be in 
the end.

Good point. I tend to think the people in the IG list won't be 
frightened by such traffic.

Yes. The form script is pretty stable now, I just have to change the 
address on monday (currently) from me + me to list + issue editor 
(you). It wouldn't be too hard to change, but I prefer to do it this 
way (commenting some lines of code is easier than adding some :)

I'm not very likely to be online during the week-end, but if someone 
notices something wrong with the form before monday, I can fix it on 
(my) monday (that's sunday for most of the world).
