Es4-discuss Digest, Vol 8, Issue 44

There's a difference between meeting minutes of the WG and the discussions
that need to occur now in the development community. If ES4 is to succeed, a
chunk of the development community needs to get behind it (and at least not
be actively opposed to it). The insider baseball that's been occurring for
the last two years is not particularly useful to the development community
(no, I am not going back to read two years worth of minutes). It would be
extremely helpful to get a coherent set of the concerns about ES4 (Doug's
"consequences") so that interested parties outside of the WG can get a sense
of what's going on technically.
I would specifically like to hear a realistic technical scenario where the
implementation of ES4 produces serious complications in the open web.
