If such things are published on a w3.org address by a W3C staff member 
who is also W3C contact for the Shapes WG, and the page clearly states 
that this will be input to the WG, then at a minimum the WG should have 
been informed about this initiative in advance. Why do we have an ISSUE 
tracker that everyone is supposed to use for important decisions? Why do 
we have weekly meetings?

Having said this, it is always good to collect feedback. Yet by framing 
the questionnaire in certain ways, it is easy to get the answers that 
you intended in advance. For example of course people will say they need 
negation, yet the document doesn't mention that one way to achieve that 
would be to use SPARQL.
