Having gone to the experience of putting out a draft that had 1200
comments, I can say that we do not want to put a draft out that has that
kind of response. We want to put it something that is reasonably well
vetted. Otherwise, the group spends a year and a half clearing the
comments, literally.

Cheers,
David MacDonald
