I'd really like to know what all the editors think about this.  I feel
that 7 editors is a large enough group to make it difficult to
maintain the focus on the issues we discuss.  If we open up the
process to the public, we may get lost in all the proposals, opinions
and wish-lists that are sent to us.  Witness the current flurry of
messages on the SRFI-50 mailing-list...  I would like to contribute,
but I just can't keep up with all the discussions.  To stay in control
of the R6RS process, I feel it is best to limit the discussions to the
7 editors.  We can have progress reports (as indicated in the charter)
to inform the public and get their pulse.
