Cassandra Smith to be precise who is also on the mailing list for this
newsgroup and would have seen any responses.  I also note that
comments are supposed to go back to the newsgroup, not to the
individual, so omission of the e-mail address of the proposer is not a
major oversight.

Not so negative, please.  I note that the instructions in the RFD
emphasize not posting comments such as "This is a great idea!", etc.
The discussion period is primarily for amending the proposed newsgroup
charter.  Consequently, silence implies consent under the current
instructions, not a lack of caring.
