You have already made clear that you "will not be speaking to the
director about" my formal objection, and now you are casting doubt
whether I am even eligible to register the objection in the first

The concerns I raised and the suggestion I made are not different
in nature from what I wrote to you in February 2006. I chose not
to put that on the public record to make it easier for you to come
into compliance with the W3C Process without making it look like
you are just giving in to outside pressure. You chose to ignore it.

I am not interested in discussing only the technical points of my
technical issues as you recommend. I am interested in XForms being
developed in an environment that invites outside expertise in order
to minimize the amount and severity of problems with it, and maxi-
mize the consensus around it.

Engaging with you in technical discussion about my issues at this
point and in this thread would send two messages. Firstly, the
Forms Working Group will ignore one's feedback unless threatend
during Last Call, and secondly, all the other feedback the Working
Group ignored up to this point can continue to be ignored.

Many of your arguments, rhetorics, and interpretations of the W3C
Process, like your doubt whether I am eligible to engage in this
discussion at all, serve nothing but to increase tension.

I hope from the points above you can understand that the sole pur-
pose of my Formal Objection is to make sure The Director is aware
of how XForms 1.1 came to be and, as a neutral third party, settle
this dispute. You rather resolved it yourself in your favour, so
there is nothing left for me to add to this thread.
