Well, first off, this is the wrong list if you want to make a request of 
the Working Group. To give feedback to the Working Group, please use this list:


If you make your comment there, then the Working Group will be required to 
make an official response. We will enter the message into a last call 
comments list and discuss it in a meeting, then announce what we decided.

If you want my prediction .... I think this has already been discussed to 
death on several occasions, and it is somewhat unlikely that we will change 
this. But if you make the comment on the public comments list (I think you 
have, actually), then we do have to consider this again.
