Margaret, there is no constant editing. The problem are the turn around
cycles. If it takes many weeks to follow up on last call comments, then
there is a problem with the management of this WG. You reactions indicate 
that you do not really want any contribution to this WG and that you do
not really care about the documents and the document quality. If that is
indeed the case, then there is probably no point to continue.
