Well, it would be nice if progress on the spec would not depend on a 
single person's time.

Furthermore, it appears that the introduction of the Decision Policy has 
led to a situation where the WG is focused on process issues, polls, and 
change proposals.

Optimally, instead it would be the place for technical discussion 
*before* things get escalated.
