Michael, I didn't forget it, just, XSLT is not under the responsability of
XML-Query
(the Character Model draft also came out, but I can't send announcements for
everything
as it's not my job to do the whole W3C comm... ;)

That's the usual W3C default for comments list, the intent is to avoid that
heavy discussion clutters the mailing list, and makes unclear when an issue
is put forward, or just discussion/chit-chat is happening. Sending a message
to public-qt-comments implies you want to formally raise an issue, and such
issues have to be mandatorily resolved before last call.
Nothing prevents to use for what you want a discussion list (like
www-ql@w3.org).
Of course, we can discuss whether to change this, but then good reasons have
to
be brought forward.

ps As Andrew Watt already noted, pls note the archive for public-qt-comments
is of course
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-qt-comments/ ,sorry about the
typo.
