Well, there is

which is a public document.  

And I can't find the documentation just now, but I know (as co-editor
of multiple W3C specs) that we are required to produce a written 
"disposition of comments" on all public (not w3c, public) comments sent
to the address on the published WDs and PRs.  And there are lots of them.
And sometimes they're good comments that change the draft. 

Not that I'm saying W3C process is perfect.  Nor that this debate
isn't useful. -Tim
