This cannot be taken to imply a free-for-all. The TAG should restrict
discussion on www-tag to the point where they can reasonably follow all
conversations if not explicitly respond to all issues.

Posting one issue request is one thing. But conversing at length without
a clear issue is totally different. I'd say that the latter should go to
xml-dev (in this case).
