We're not blowing off your feedback at all.  We are open to changing our 
spec in whatever way works out best for all involved, and we will 
definitely be discussing and incorporating your comments.  If we haven't 
already put your feedback into Tracker, I'll make sure that's done right 
away, and we will mark up the spec with outstanding issues.

We also welcome you to join our telcon when we discuss Transforms, and 
will even schedule a call when it's convenient for you; we can probably 
make faster progress that way.

Sure, understandable.  I don't think that the specs need to be identical 
for us to publish them as FPWDs.  I imagine that at some point, they may 
even get out of sync on the Rec track, and I don't see that as a big 
deal as long as we have good communication about it.

Sorry if we haven't been as communicative thus far... we've just found 
that the SVG-in-text/html issue has taken a lot of our time.
