I do welcome your efforts to be a gadfly, and I welcome even more  
your commitment to be more diplomatic. :-)

I also encourage people to post suggestions/votes/data on the  
relevant wiki pages, to help push us towards a constructive solution:

* http://microformats.org/wiki/faq#Q:_Who_controls_microformats.3F
* http://microformats.org/wiki/issues#Governance_Issues

I would also like to revive the idea of a "meta-discuss" list to  
handle governance and other non-technical issues.  This appears to be  
off-topic for the current wiki page on mailing lists for new  

* http://microformats.org/wiki/mailing-lists-proposals#microformats-meta

So, can anyone suggest the appropriate venue for proposing/discussing
