I think this pretty much sums it up -- the value of your contributions
(whether you're on the WG or just a member of the public commenting on
the mailing list) really depends on the social nature of the WG, its
leaders, and its members. Like any group, some are open and some are
not. Note that this has nothing to do with the W3C or its processes.
