maybe, you're a little bit wrong. I agree with you that it could be 
usefull if the community could have discussion about xhtml 
implementation and not developping the specs, BUT one of W3C's goals 
is the promotion of the specs.  There's sense for a mailing list on 
the subject at W3C.
I agree with Dan, the domain name means nothing, but the support for 
the list's management is very important. eGroups is a private 
company. What about the archives when they will change their chart 
for economic reason, or private interests ???

	Yes, sure and it's great. It's why the web is so successfull. 
But if you have a proposal with the choice between eGroups or W3C as 
operators, there's IMHO only one answer.

	I hope too, and it will be :-)

C'est dans l'éclat caressant de vos yeux,
Qu'il avait cru trouver l'étoile double.
