I can't see the mail you're responding to, either in my inbox or in the 
list archives...

But the answer is that I suggested this venue, and I suggested it 
because we need a discussion venue that will actually reach people who 
may want to have input into this, across multiple vendors, so we can 
actually make a decision instead of flip-flopping back and forth like 
we've been doing.  Github issues totally fail at this, in general, 
unless people are watching all issues for a repo (and even then, the 
signal to noise ratio in the resulting mails is so low they tend to be 
mass-deleted so it's too easy to miss things).

If someone has a better suggestion for a venue which will actually cause 
the relevant people from at least Apple, Microsoft, Google, and Mozilla 
to be involved in the discussion, I'm all for it.
