In my opinion, the next message in cases like these (and in fact in any
case where a WG response has been rejected) should be discussed within the
WG.  WG members should never respond individually in cases like these.
This has been policy (sometimes not well enforced) in WGs that I have
participated in.

On a broader scale, there are very good reasons for WG members not to
debate in -comments lists, or even to send posts to these lists that have
not been vetted by the WG, even if  WG members explicitly mark their
postings as personal.
