I think that puts the question nicely Frank.

I am assuming an editor can ask the WG to consider any comment raised, so 
the editor can push anything on to the WG.

The question in my mind is, how much does the WG wish to be involved and 
how much would it prefer the editors to just handle on their own.  The 
point of the discussion in todays telecon is to ask the WG this 
question.  I think possible answers include:

   o the WG reviews all changes
   o editors have freedom to fix trivial changes (typos, links, formatting, 
grammar), but the WG would like to review all other changes
   o the WG would like to review all comments, but may decide the issue is 
editorial and then leave it to the editor to fix
   o the WG would like to leave it entirely to the editors judgement of 
when to consult the WG.
