Karl exposed the security reasons :
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2007Apr/0585.html. We
*need* more than one editor because 'the show must go on', whatever it
happens. On a broader scale, we are generating *many* emails,
reactions, documents, and one editor only will shurly miss some
reactions. And the effort of some editor to understand each other and
to make compromise should lead to a more clear spec.
