To be clear, Microsoft supports this approach for the Testing Task Force. In
particular, we'd like to emphasise the desire (articulated in point 2) that
participants of the task force be able to be members of the working group and
the task force mailing list without needing to receive the large volume of mail
from public-html.

We will nominate a senior test leader from the Internet Explorer team to
participate in the Task Force. We also intend to contribute test cases.
