I don't know what is in Ian's job description, but it is true he has
operated in fashion for as long as I have been a member of the HTML
WG. It has cause many prolonged process discussions.

Sam talked about the Commit then Review (CTR) [3] process that the
working group seems to have been operating under. Then last fall the
Chairs added the decision policy [4] to help make decisions on the
Review of the spec.

Now that we have used the policy for one decision, it certainly seems
like a good time for the Chairs to clarify the items Larry asked about

Shelley, I would encourage you to also document what you see as
problem areas with the policy so the Chairs can examine and address
them properly.
