The separate list and channels was just an idea (like working groups).  
I DO think having a few real-time discussions would be good.  No 
matter.  I think they're trying to get US to organize the two positions 
rather than just hashing it out and then leaving it to them to find 
everything and sort through a few megs of data.  Otherwise its just a 
lot of back and forth on a mail list and then no formal data on how it 
did or did not influence the process.  Are you willing to help put 
together an organized set of arguments collaboratively with others?
