I linked to the full context.  I copied you in the email in the hopes 
that you would provide additional context, if such were needed.  I see 
that you have now done so, and for that, I thank you.

That condition was not in your email.  Whether or not Jeff led you to 
believe this is in dispute.  Either way, I see nothing in the existing 
Membership or Invited Expert agreements that supports this claim.

I will now ask you for clarification as to why you believe this claim to 
be true.

I will now ask you for clarification as to what the other reasons are 
that the WHATWG would not be willing to collaborate on the URL 
Specification.

I remain interested in collaborating with everybody.
