For any serious technical issue raised, I will definitely respond 
eventually, even if it takes a few weeks, depending on my schedule.  I 
won't guarantee every individual mail gets a response, but I will at 
least cover all points raised in a thread.  I will  basically do it the 
way I've handled Selectors API feedback in the WebApps WG.

I should also point out that you can also use bugzilla.  Just use the 
"HTML WG" product and "Developer's Guide" component.

Personally, I think the number of people supporting a particular idea is 
irrelevant and I generally will not be taking that into account.  If one 
person raises a technical issue and can back it up with good arguments, 
which are stronger than any arguments against, even if no-one else 
explicitly expresses support, then I will accept it and move on.
