Could you explain as to why you feel these two statements are related? I  
have a really hard time following your rationale. I don't disagree with  
that the Selectors editor's draft should be public, but given that all  
changes to the latest published draft have been discussed on this mailing  
list it's difficult to understand your assertions. Also, Selectors has  
been stable for a long period of time so no major changes are expected  
anyway, nor announced, nor planned. (They are for Selectors Level 4.)

(Also, going forward it would be useful if you changed the subject to  
something relevant and only cc'ed the relevant lists.)
