Me too.

Probably. On the other hand, waiting until we have a great system that  
automates it all is a likely route to ensuring we don't do anything for a  
long time.

If we start by doing it manually, someone might get annoyed enough to  
improve on that in real time. An in the meantime we manage to actually  
have a higher level of coordination than we do today. (Which is also why I  
am concerned at Marcos' futures limitation...)

Sure. Specs have feedback mechanisms, and I believe it is generally the  
case that those allow for public participation. I agree this could become  
a problem, but it is currently a problem I would like to have.
