So by cleverly choosing a forum that you knew I couldn't attend (and that 
others who were interested in it, e.g. WG members from Europe, couldn't 
attend either) you managed to manufacture consent and perpetuate your 
refusal to address the issue.  

In any case the WG consists of people on this mailing list, not a select 
few folks in some back-room in Vancouver.
