Rick, I have already updated the post and YES, TC39 **should** consider
what the rest of the world would like to do or the way has always done
something and expecting to do otherwise the one that's not respecting will
result to be TC39.
So, here, summarized my thoughts, re-explained in that post:
my point is that surveys should be public too because if 3 developers
cannot represent the entire community, neither can 300 behind the same
company, or just a couple. There are many more of us out there, *I'd love
to see the possibility to participate every time a decision about an API
should be made*!
If you think that survey can help you, I completely agree that these should
be considered ... developers are those that will use the language, don't
you and everyone else.
