preference is to do something in public, but most important is to let 
the WG know you've seen it something like -- "I read the document and 
liked it, although had some wording suggestions (sent to Jeff 
separately)" sent to the group lets us all know where you stand

yes, it was not as advertised - we gave everyone significantly more 
time than previously asked for, we're way behind our original schedule

Not directed at Lynn, but a general reminder -- the charter states

"Participation is expected to consume at least one day per week of 
each Working Group member's time."

and simply joining one telecon per week when convenient does not 
count as meeting that time commitment.  Reviewing documents is a 
necessary part of making our group work folks, as will participating 
in subgroups and etc.
