One reason for this may be that many of the issues & questions raised
have been about the ownership and control of the specification and not
the glasgow project itself.  I accept that a project whose goal is the
implementation of a specification must necessarily be judged with
reference to that specification.  However, that not all the developers
of a particular implementation of a specification feel qualified to
comment on legal issues relating to that specification, or to the
processes that govern it, should not be taken as implying that they do
not participate as individuals within their project.

Questions for the protocol group may well require discussion and
agreement amongst the members of that group and as those members do
not correspond to the members of the glasgow proposal this list would
not be an appropriate place for that discussion.
