I think that we should elicit public comment on a report that is a
TF consensus statement. What would the point be in posting material
on which we cannot come to consensus? We would not be well served
by any action that might be seen as an admission of our inability to
dispatch our task.
It's one thing eliciting community feedback on a near-final draft of
our report. It's quite another thing effectively to open the
membership of the TF to include anybody who is inclined to
participate in the open discussion. In fact, I would have had no
objection to running this entire exercise on precisely such a basis.
If, however, we're going to respect the clearly articulated
constraints that have been placed on the TF membership, we should do
so with some rigor.
