Corrections on both counts:
  - Your message was received the first time and posted to the comments 
list; you can check the archive to see.
  - We most emphatically do read the comments list.  (Why would we go 
through the trouble of setting up a list which we don't read?)  What we 
don't do is *respond* to it, because its for submitting comments, not 
for discussion.  We make a strong commitment that everything sent to the 
comments list is reviewed, and if appropriate, discussed in the EG.  The 
cost of that is that we don't respond in real-time, nor do we support 
ongoing discussions on that list, to ensure that the comments list 
remains a high signal-to-noise list that justifies the strong commitment 
we make for it.

I'm not sure they check the comment list. You can probably send it
directly to Dan Smith.
