[This response is informal and may not represent the views of 
the I18N WG/IG]

I have two concerns:

1.  Some of our (important) comments are not mentioned.  Their 
    fate is unclear, and I don't think the saying "No news is 
    good news" applies in this case.

2.  No link to a revised draft is provided, so we can't see the 
    new text.
