It was pointed out to me that my choice of words didn't unambiguously  
capture what I meant.

My suggestion wasn't about venue. It was about the inability to  
discover the existence of motivating feedback even if one was  
following discussion on all well-known public venues and using  
continuous Web searches to track less known public venues.

Everyone here *knows* that the WHATWG list and channel exist and the  
archives/logs can be inspected at will.
