The reason I put each of these in a separate e-mail is to separate
issues out into manage-able threads of discussion. I do admit that it's
a personal preference, but threaded discussion seems to be a fairly
accepted method of working through spec issues.

I realize that your preference is to edit the wiki and not respond via
e-mail, but it's not clear to me how this is a better method of refining
these specs, especially when we're just discussing things. I see that
the mailing list rules have been updated as a result of my posts:

Could you please explain why it's better to discourage per-issue threads
on the mailing list and instead direct people to the wiki? Why are we
discouraging one form of recorded communication over another?
