As described in [WorkMode], WebApps' asynchronous participation and edit 
first "work modes" means group members must actively participate on the 
list and actively file bugs and participate in bug reports. We also 
expect both Editors and group participants to work toward obtaining 
broad consensus as described in the charter [Decisions].

I agree the threads started by Maciej at [1364.html] and Dimitri at 
[0312.html] do not appear to have reached broad consensus. (I am not 
subscribed to www-style so I haven't followed those discussions.)

Dimitri, Maciej, Ryosuke - is there a mutually agreeable solution here?

-Thanks, ArtB
