Chris, There is perhaps some confusion here. Most Wikipedians are accustomed to a process of *discussion*, during which a consensus emerges and is accepted by the community at large, and implemented by community prcesses. It has perhaps not been made perfectly clear that this is a *feedback* process, where the Working Groups publish their recommendations, the community pass their comments back to the WG, and the WG then collate them and decide the final form of the recommendations, to be implemented by the WMF. Some of the angst in previous comments on the list (about lack of time, and so forth) derives from the fact that this crucial difference has clearly not been universally understood.
