Without making any accusations of good or bad faith, I have noticed that  
once again your replies to various emails which include the fact that  
changes are made to the spec do not necessarily get posted to this group.

The effect is to reduce the transparency of the HTML spec development to  
the HTML Working Group, by forcing them to follow at least the WHAT-WG in  
order to see the issues and explanations that lead to changes being  

Would you be able, as editor for this working group, to add this wrking  
group to the recipients in such messages you send?
