Well, if you make a public comment to www-xml-infoset-comments, it *will*
be resolved in a public disposition-of-comments message before Infoset

The intention of the www-*-comments list is to provide a log of
public comments: they are more likely to be looked at on the Web
after the fact than processed in real time as email.  But (at
