(Well http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2011Aug/0029.html I
have a bit of a problem with the priorities, and I have a problem with
the breadth of the discussions, but volume does not factor into it much;
and I disagree that having people flesh out proposals for specification
text would help (I would expect quite the opposite; I assume of course
that you mean proposals in this sense, as this appears to have been an
issue of terminology, and rigorous attention to terminilogy is what I
would associate with specification text). In the case here though, the
first mail in the thread was "Is there a draft that discusses this? I
couldn't find one." Even if you add the "background-repeat: extend" in
the Subject, this does not establish context well enough for anyone to
follow, so downstream confusion and inattention is to be expected.)
