Your work load, including your 2000 emails, are a self imposed problem 
Ian, You're the one that insists on editing the whole spec by yourself 
even though the chairs and others have requested that you share the 
editorial responsibilities. I've offered to help, I've made suggestions 
to the W3C and to you in an effort to help reduce your work load, if 
there's something else you think I can do to help, then let me know.

No, that is/was not the case, I do not think it was a purely editorial 
issue, it was preventing implementation.
But thanks for changing it.

If you consider these sorts of things just "minor editorial issues" then 
perhaps you could let someone else edit these areas for you so you can 
get on with more important work.

As I've said, it's not my problem that you want to edit the whole spec
