Added (FWIW, if we use WBS, we get to specify the date of end of review
in a more prominent place, too).

www-qa-wg@w3.org sounds good to me, but...

There might be, indeed. If we don't use WBS, maybe I'll ask them to send
their review to dom@w3.org, cc w3c-archive@w3.org?

I don't think we need to promise it; but I think we should make one.

I think this is too detailed, since it will be understood by too few
people. I expect that if people have developed such a language, they are
likely to point us to it at some point in their questionnaire.

I think it would be useful, but I haven't found a way to formulate it in
a way that I thought would be understandable by enough people; do you
have a proposal?
