That's a reasonable request; I'm sure a lot of people are hesitant
to use the inboxes of ~300 people to get up to speed.

IRC is one of the better options at this point; it's far from perfect,
but it often gets the job done. The WG homepage has some pointers...
"Some participants supplement these with IRC discussion in the #html-wg 
channel on, port 6665, with public logs and an informal 
directory with names and timezones."

I'm interested in having someone present HTML5, or the differences
between HTML4 and HTML5, in a teleconference. The idea got
a little support support when I brought it up in IRC, but
it also got some resistance, so I haven't pursued it very actively.
