I think it would be very helpful to provide the supporting
evidence for the "needs" by adding some of the context you have
provided over email, and adding clear problem statements.

I encourage starting by engaging the HTMLWG community from the
beginning, to make sure each side understands the other's
problem statements, design principles and needs.

It may come across that way, but I read it more as the natural 
reaction of a working group to any newcomer who arrives with a 
list of fully-baked needs.  What led you to create this list?
Where are the supporting data?  What's the problem you are trying
to solve?  How can we modify the solution to fit the design rules
of the space in which you want to operate?
