How is technical merit assessed?  Removing Theora from the
specification, for example, seems like it was for political rather
than technical reasons, if I understand how you use the terms.  How
can one learn of the technical motivations of decisions such as the
change to require ImageData for Canvas, or participate in their
evaluation prior to them gaining the incumbent's advantage of being
present in the specification text?
