Agreed - people do listen to XML-Dev.  But would they bother to watch a
forum discussing just the politics?  I doubt it, and that's why I don't see
removing the politics from XML-Dev as a good thing for XML. This could
change, of course, if the W3C starts inviting the public as well as
listening, and creates public forums with 'official' standing.
