> Doug Crockford made some statements about TG1 members and motives. 

The speculations about motives were made by others on this list, not by me. 

In answer to a question from Brent Ashley, I said that the working group was not in consensus, a fact which would have been apparent to any keen observer at the San Francisco Ajax Experience when you and I were sitting side-by-side arguing about the wisdom of the proposal.

I pointed out that and the write paper are not official ECMA publications. The working group did not vote on either. I recommended that everyone read the white paper, and if they liked it, they should say so. And if they didn't, they should say that too. My intention was to start a debate. My advice was that people read it before taking sides. I wish more people were taking that advice. The proposal is not a done deal. It has serious consequences that should be discussed.
