Indeed, I find it rather strange that the main target of this working group
is practices for advertisers and yet one of the main groups representing
advertisers doesn't have a vote at the table... I realize that this is at
the discretion of the chairs, but we're probably all lacking some context
here. It seems that this has been raised multiple times, is it possible for
the chairs to provide more insight into why this hasn't been advanced to
date?
