     I agree, with one caveat: virtually none of the high-level 
stakeholders (spec editors, browser vendors, etc) bother to engage the 
community on public-webrtc.

     What's the point of discussing the API on this mailing list if our 
opinion goes unnoticed? We shouldn't be moving the discussion to 
public-webrtc as a nice way to filter us out. This discussion requires 
their attention, be it on one mailing list or the other. I don't mind 
where we discuss it, so long as they get involved.

     Is it their intention to get involved on public-webrtc and 
summarize the results on rtcweb?
