I'd like to encourage everyone on this thread to please remember that the 
topic of this mailing list is technical discussion of HTML itself, not 
discussion about discussion, or as in this case, discussion about 
discussion (an article) of discussion (arguments mentioned in the 
article). Let's please focus on specific technical matters that can 
actually improve the Web, rather than process issues.

If you would like to discuss the article in question, it has a comments 
section for this very purpose. There's also an "off topic" section on the 
WHATWG forums:


As HTML returns to the media limelight it held in the late 90s, people may 
be interested in discussing the coverage more and more. Similarly, people 
may be interested in discussing the "inside baseball" matters such as the 
various decision policies in place around this work. If there is demand 
for it, I'd be happy to create a mailing list for the purpose of 
discussing these matters on the WHATWG servers. Please let me know if this 
is something you'd be interested in.

Thanks in advance for everyone's restraint,
