I'd like the chairs to clarify whether treating a working group like
a debating club is appropriate. I gave my experience as an
implementor in good faith. What Dave is saying here is that I'm
either incompetent, lying, or otherwise an unreliable source. I do
not see why such a person attack is an appropriate response as
it serves to drag the working group into the mud. Manifestly.
