No it is not. And, again, you can't speak for the whole CSS WG.

Again no. I care as co-chair and was asked to do so.

And as the AC-Rep of my own company, again no, that's not cool to
see an API published under W3C Patent Policy go elsewhere w/o. I am sure
some other AC-Reps will feel the same. We were not asked to move
Selectors API outside of W3C, we were _notified_.

My own take about this: this is not a question for individual
contributors but for AC-Reps. And I'll let plh contribute more
about this.
