That's not how the IETF works. Working groups as a whole can't  
formally review external documents; however, interested individuals  
can come and give expert feedback (which I think has happened here).  
There's also a formal liaison between W3C and IETF that can be used;  
pursuing that path would likely end up with an expert (or experts)  
being nominated to provide feedback.
