None, I don't think there needs to be anything else. Not when it comes to
change proposals.

There really is no discussion related to these in the HTML WG email lists,
because these are proposals, which then go to survey. That you're complying
with the Decision Process is a given because you're submitting proposals.

If there's any discussion in the HTML WG Comments email list, I'm assuming that
the same discussion rules apply to that email list as apply to all email lists
in the W3C. 

There was discussion about the first Decision Process decisions, because there
was a lot of confusion about how the decisions were worded. But several people
participated in this, and the discussion led to clarifications and more caution
in follow up decisions. 

There was an amazing amount of discussion related to the longdesc attribute
removal, but I didn't get the impressing that any of this was "bad", or to be
discouraged. And I didn't particpate. 

You don't quibble over the color of house paint when you don't own a house.
We're discussing rules that don't apply to a non-member filing a change
proposal. Non-members _can't_ send email to the HTML WG email list. We can't
participate in the surveys.
