Working Groups are not required to formally address such issues, they
are not required to respond in a timely manner, and just responding to
reviewers does not solve the problem as a response does not change the
specification in any way. And that there is such a requirement does not
mean that Working Groups actually do it. There thus seems to be room
for improvement...

I am not sure where you got this rule for members from, maybe you can
point me to the relevant section in the operative Process document?
