It seems likely that www-tv is going to be the place of choice to discuss 
the TV URL draft to exhaustion. The message I replied to seemed relevant, 
and was CCed there, so I thought it polite to reply to that list.

Yes, we disagree.

Some of the policies we disagree upon (the URI ones) were set by me.
Discussing what those procedures *are* therefore seems a bit strange to me.
I'm fine with discussing what those procedures *should be*, but think that 
discussion belongs to the URLREG WG.
