with concrete examples so we don't focus on abstract debates about "does
CSS have enough properties?" In particular, I think it is a good idea if
the Web developers community starts playing Flex and analyze/report
performance problems instead of showing off some of the half-baked

The former part of the proposal "suggesting a different focus on the
Working Group side (what is critical, and hence, implied, what can be
removed?)" hasn't got a feedback though. If the group is confident
enough to say "No, removing drafts from the group isn't helpful at all"
then it could explain.
